Default Re: Casting weighted streamers

I cast streamer against convential wisdom. I actually use a shorter stroke and hual and don't open my loops.

Many casters, I believe, open their loops to help keep the fly from hitting the rod tip. This will work, but willl also weaken the cast.

Forming a good tight loop, when done correctly, willl not cause the streamer to hit the rod tip.

Also, to fish below the surface, I prefer to use a sinking line rather than a heavy flie.

Finally, all casters, especially when there's wind make bad casts; so I always wear a broad-brimmed hat and wear sunglasses.
