    It's an interesting topic. Tracy fishes for bonefish with a #5 marked rod that you can buy off-the-shelf right now, but she uses a #7 line on it. She sometimes uses the same rod in casting comps with a #5 line. So is she over-lining when bonefishing and casting to the AFFTA spec in comps or is she actually underlining for the comp casting and fishing to a more realistic spec?

    I would say the latter James.
    I still squirm when I see Lasse's clip of casting a 12 line on a v light rod...
    These things can be done, but at the expense of distance or the rod blank.
    I am still yet to try a five line on my 9/10 weight. Must give it a go to see how much I can carry.....

    Don't think that doing this will give you an instant distance boost - it might well result in the exact opposite I've given such an outfit to casters in the past and have seen them fail to even form a loop. My carry doesn't change much at all with varying rod stiffness.

    T8 on a five weight goes miles, Rob Doyle and I tried to break one of his chinesse 5# it hardly creaked. T11 was a bit much but still no break

    The next BFCC Meeting is at Oswestry Rugby Club, near Oswestry Show Ground, Shropshire (SY11 4AB) on Saturday 16th June 2018.

    There will be the usual fly casting instruction and various distance competitions and an accuracy event. If you fancy improving your casting and checking out your distance against a tape then come along. There will be a few members of the UK team attending who are entering the World Fly Casting Championship that will be held in Cumbria in August 2018.

    When I started going to these meetings I could only cast around 80ft and now I regularly cast over 110ft with a 5wt and over 120ft with a 7wt. Just goes to show the improvements that regular tuition can make.

    Hope to see you there
    Tracy

    I'm sure it's your shirts that scare off the grass carp. :-)
