Default Re: No wrist = fly hitting rod tip... ???

Rollin, I fish an 8wt alot in the wind, and have impaled a streamer through my rod tip once, and had a rod break from a bruise caused by impacting with shot/flies.
I've heard this is a very common diagnosis at the Sage repair dept.
Over time I developed a Belgian loop. Think larger oval stroke, and no stop on the backcast. No more problem.
What's funny is, I can use this dry fly fishing now. Finnishing with a reach, up stream.
Very sweet, light presentation, and an extended drift without a mend.
Good luck sorting it out, it'll be worth it..

Jim
