Re: Throwing Larger Flies with a 6wt.....
You may just need to adjust your casting. I use Clousers and bigger flies on a 5 wt. all the time. I also live on big water where there is no such thing as casting to far. It can be done. Get a big fat Clouser and start practicing. If all else fails, get a heavier weight rod. Also, I don't think it has anything to do with your leader.
