Re: casting a 5wt?
How goes the Snook fishing. Did you ever get out again?
Are you going to be fishing Saltwater or are you doing some trout fishing? I am going to assume you are trout fishing. You will find that your normal casting stroke will do just fine just throttle back a bit. You won't have to be doing a lot of double hauls like you are use to for saltwater. Downsize your tippets and have at it. You will have a lot of line mending and line control that you don't have to worry about with saltwater.
