Because even 5 wraps will cause the fly to sink.
10 will sink it faster, but not twice as fast. And no I don't have any scientific study to prove this; just common sense and experience.

Say I put 8 wraps on a PT, if I can squeeze 1 or 2 more it will help, but not drastically. And I won't do it if I think it's going to make the fly look off.

I have seen your lead fly with red thread by the way.

Google wins...

I'm working on a derivation. I'll post my results in a little bit.

Maybe pcray can check my solution since he's a physicist and all.

To get my flies to break the surface more effectively I allow them to hit the surface harder.

more skilled casters will use a vertical entry vs. horizontal.

do not turn art into science. the reversal is acceptable, but sometimes its the soul of the thing that matters.

stop trying to smash the soul of fishing out.

The way we steelhead in PA is semi-passionless. Just hooking into big fish in the fall is what it's all about here.


Now swing some salmon flies on a switch rod out west... now there's passion.

Shall I remind you of April Vokey?

No, Sender's insane formulae webpage is from a steelheading site.

Soulless. I have contempt.

And yet western steelheading as practiced in BC. is an art with flies instead of snagging hooks.
