Second catch guide

Rate this topic

Al, I got the pleasure of meeting and having dinner with Ron Arra a couple months back and he said that by adding a second collecting guide just up from the first increased casting distance significantly. I emailed Ron and he said that you had been the one that shared this with him. Can you elaborate and give proper distance? Also can I then add a guide to a production rod or does it change the spacing of the other guides?

Jon,

 

This was for saltwater fly rods. What you do is take the same size guide as the second guide and place it four inches in front of the stripper guide. You do not change the spacing of the other guides.

 

I am experimenting with the same concept for a conventional casting rod but have not yet had time to test cast it.
