I have a new flie line and it’s not lying straight when it lands in the water. do i need to stretch it and how do i do it?
Experienced athletes share their insights in answering this question:
I recommend pulling all the line out and laying it out in the sun for a few hours to relax it

How to Identify and Resolve Common Issues ?

We offer a diverse range of insights on identifying and resolving common problems in sports. Our sources encompass academic articles, blog posts, and personal essays shared by seasoned athletes. :

You want your line to have just enough power so that it uncurls and lands straight on the water. Too much power is going to cause ripples and slack to form in your line.” Work smart, not hard. If your line is landing past your fly, this is probably what`s going wrong.
(1) Your braided fishing line may be too light; (2) Your line might be digging in against itself on the spool; (3) There could be an issue with your line guides or other equipment; (4) Your knot might be weak; (5) Your line may be nicked from fish or abrasions; or (6) You might be overpowering your casts.
Run the line through the guides on the rod to the reel with the bail open and tie it tightly to the spool. If you use a regular overhand square knot, pass the end through twice instead of just once – it will help keep the line tight on the spool.
If the line piles up, your loop is too wide and you will need to move the rod tip in a straighter path. Rule # 3: The fly will go in the direction the rod tip is traveling when it stops. First, the fly will go where your rod tip is pointing when you stop it and form a loop.
If your spool is sitting too low, the braided line will start to unevenly bunch up towards the top of the spool which will cause knots due to the line overlapping.
Using braided line rather than monofilament line will dramatically increase the distance that you can cast.
Well, weight forward lines tend to have a bigger taper towards the front and are the most common option. These are the easiest to cast and the best choice for the beginner or regular fly angler.
Having a heavier line will put more bend in the rod, making it easier to feel the loading. This, in turn, will make it easier to throw accurate casts. Loading with less line or long leaders – Another big benefit of overlining, for experts and beginners alike, is being able to load a rod with less fly line out.
With a shooting head a casting distance of 30 meters/100 feet or more is decent. Most fish are caught closer than 15-20 meters or 50 feet and then some.
Line size can be a drag

The short of it a heavier, thicker line will not cast as well as a thinner, lighter line will. So 10-pound line will throw a lure much farther than 20-pound line will. There is less drag on the line in both the guides and in the air.

Line twist can occur for many reasons, but the number one culprit in my opinion is when an angler continues to reel in while a fish is pulling drag. Every turn of the reel handle puts 4 to 6 twists in your line depending on your reel`s gear ratio.
Usually caused by a brake release or uneven risers trapping suspension lines, the situations are almost never recoverable, and trying to kick out of the twists is just wasting time and altitude. Fortunately, there`s a lot you can do to respond to spinning line twists correctly.
It is very important to make sure that your fly line stays in contact with the water (or ground, in this case), or you may find yourself dumping your cast. In this first step I tend to see two common mistakes: Rushing right into the forward motion of the cast. Keeping our hand low throughout the cast.
Heavier line weights also generate more energy and line speed in a cast, making casting into the wind and longer casts much easier. This is why heavier rods are used for saltwater even if the flies may be something that could be casted on lighter setups.
They don`t. This is an error of perception, not a function of the flies, which rarely fly in a straight line, never mind turn corners.

Need a Popeil Pocket fisherman manual
ANSWER : For the original pocket fisherman. I believe the design has not changed. Once you do it the first time it is actually quite easy.Two things to note. Read this whole thing first.1) the location of the bail spring (Keeps the metal bail cover up so line does not get stuck when casting.Note: This is important cause the metal bail cover must rise enough so that the line casts smoothly. (A complaint about this product. But when calibrated correctly it is quite good for what it is)2) The little **** that the crank gear plastic housing will fit into (Must be on top when you put the whole bail back in. The crank shaft lip fits into that ****.You’ll get it when you see it.Remove the panel screws (2) as you did. Pop out the crank shaft (copper). **** is in top when replacing. (remember that). Remove the bail. On the top of the bail there is a screw. ( becareful and remember how the little metal bail spring in situated here. Turn upside down with metal bail cover in your palm as it conects to the bail spring). Pull off metal bail cover. The plastic line holder actually comes apart and holds a lot more line than you think. Replace line. Feed the line back up the rod. Assemble the opposite.

Think it may be a line tension problem. every
ANSWER : Try attaching the swivel to a chain link fence and walk away feeding the line completely out. Then begin reeling in the line at a normal pace with the drag set at max, after 10-15 turns decrease the drag a full turn. continue doing this until the line is fully retrieved. then set the drag as you normally would before fishing. Sometimes the line gets twisted while fishing which cause the tangles and backlashes. Make sure you use a barrel swivel also.

Spark plug wire boot grounding out on coil, 96 outback 2.5 automatic, just put new spark plug wires, new spark plugs, and new coil on. ran great for two weeks, now spark is jumping out of boot at coil on one wire, put old coil back on and still does it in the same spot. replaced wires again, and still does it in the same spot. seems to do it only under a load. Is my new spark plug on that cylinder bad? Does the coil need some insulation under it? It is the coil that sits right on top of the motor. Any ideas? thanks.
ANSWER : Sparks are high voltage, and will always follow the path of least resistance. If you can visibly see a spark (whether in a lighted area, or in the dark), that means either that a plug wire (or coil wire) is open (non conductive), or your have a carbon track on the surface where the spark can be seen, but most likely you have BOTH problems!

If you have an ohmmeter, check the resistance of each wire involved, particularly spark plug wires … which means you must be able to connect to both ends of each wire at the same, and hopefully, FLEX those wires, to be sure they don’t have a break inside that is intermittent (comes and goes)!

Help! Just bought a Remington 30 06 for my grandson that has a Bushnell Sportview U4124 4-12power scope mounted on it. I would like to sight it in at 100 yards using a 180 grain shell but I don’t have the owners manual and I don’t understand an on line explanation that I found. This is the on line message: “You’ll see two horizontal crosshairs, put the top one on the animals back then zoom in until the bottom one is on his stomach. Look at the numbers on the zoom dial there should be three lines they are D – deer, E – elk and A – antelope. The numbers are the distance to the game, you then turn the external elevation knob or turret to the matching distance and shoot dead on. No need to hold over for bullet drop. The sad part will be if you didn’t get the other turrets that would have come with it as they are calibrated to different calibers and bullet weights”
I don’t understand how to set the elevation knob to 100yards when its lowest shown number is 150. If I need other turrets how or where can I get them? Thanks, a frustrated grandfather.
