Re: casting 4wt. 5.5 ft. rod
It is a Fenwick 2pc. 4/5 (from Curtis I guess). I took it out last night and it was breezy. Even double hauling, both the old man and myself could only get about 75'. I have just never heard of ANYONE casting over 100' of line with a 5' rod, but I guess anything is possible.
Even a friend of mine who is in the process of being certified would have difficulty squeezing 100+' out of a five.
