I liked this Vid' (Below) so much, I thought I'd put it on here as a new thread.
(They're often lost within the many posts on someone else's Thread)
It explains in the first bit the difference between a "True Pin" & a "Bearing" type one.
One thing I never realised was that the "True" (solid steel pin) Centrepin spins more freely in the Horizontal plane & less so in the vertical which can be used to ones advantage - ie use it in the Horizontal on a slow flowing stream & vertical on a faster flow, to obtain a similar pull from the spool when "Trotting"
The Exact opposite applies with the "Bearing" Type. (Vertical is more free spinning. Horizontal is less so)
It also demonstrates the Wallis (or is it wallace?) cast, but don't stress out over that bit!! I've never mastered, or felt the need to ever use it. (1 Loop or 2 Loop casts are all I use)
Please watch till the end - it may even be a "Brush up" to iron out any bad habits for even the most experienced Pinners!!
Just watch the Vid' - All the stuff "What I Wrote" (Ernie) is in there!!
Admin' - Could I venture to ask for this to be "Pinned" (No pun intended) for the benefit of anyone (New or existing members) wanting to try this wonderful way of fishing for the first time.
