    Look again. The reason they twist, as before, is that one side is longer than the other, and has to travel farther to get the same place. You are enlarging the inside diameter, so if the shaving is unbroken, it must be longer on one side. Shear face removes a 1mm wide shaving perpendicular to the surface. Skew takes the same 1mm difference over a shaving more than 1mm wide, making a gentler twist.

    Thirty years ago we used to go to a dear friends cabin in Man. Island in ontario. We trolled and I hooked a "big one" -northern pike. Gave the rod to my 5 yr old daughter, and after fighting it for 10 minutes she said i'm tired and wanted to give up the rod. her dad and i said ". no way"
    Landed the guy-16 1/2 #, 42 inches as I recall. Husband raced it off to some motel for the Molsun blue fish contest and she got honerable mention. That fish that my husband held up with her standing, was taller than she was!!!! have a blast fishing!!!! Gretch

    Will do. Love the story. Pike are a lot more fun to catch than the Walleye.
