Abstract

This study uses experimental and computational analysis to investigate the dynamic behavior of a fly line. Fly-casting is one of the most significant issues in fly-fishing. In order to cast a lightweight fly, the weight of a fly line is utilized. Fling speed, the casting process and the loop shape of the line while in flight are important for the proper presentation of flies. Moreover, the shape of a fly line is also important for a long cast or controlled cast. In this paper, the fly-casting process is investigated experimentally in the case of wrist fixed.
