Default Re: Need different rod for streamers?

Thanks. A few follow ups. If I'm standing in 3'-4' of water to cast across stream to the deeper channel, how can I possibly roll cast? Once I have all that floating line at my waist from stripping, it seems like it would be difficult. Also, why wouldn't a stiffer and slightly heavier rod work better here with all the added weight?

I understand about casting slower, holding the rod higher, and keeping the tip from going dipping on backcast too much. I managed to figure out how to get the line out there but found myself having to false cast about 3-4 times to feed more line out before final cast.
