Default Re: Throwing Larger Flies with a 6wt.....

I have 5-6 weight Conolon rod and a Sage Bass fly rod,230 grain which is about 8 weight line.
When I have used the bass 230 grain line on the Conolon fly rod I can cast just as far as the Sage Bass rod,which is about 60 feet using most bass flies.
The heavier weight line made a big difference on the 5-6 weight rod and I was able to cast further with bigger flies,just slow down the cast a bit and use more of a Belgian style cast.
Best of luck!
Mario
