Question No wrist = fly hitting rod tip... ???

Howdy all! Casting question I need help with.

My casting weaknesses sure become apparent when I go from my everyday 4wt to my 8wt setup! Especially when casting from water level in a float tube. So I've been trying to focus on form (I need a real-life coaching session!).

The problem is, when I focus on keeping my wrist locked, my fly ends up hitting the top 4 - 6 inches of the rod. This happens EVERY time I focus on keeping my wrist locked! I thinks it always happens on the forward cast, albeit I try not to false cast much with the 3/0 & 4/0 hooks flyin around out there.

Any ideas on what's going on?

Thanks a bunch.
