I'm glad I could help.

I must admit that after reading Doug's advice on learning the haul, I think there is a pretty good chance I am one of those who uses the haul to cover up flaws in mechanics. I actually got started in this sport chasing reds on our coast and thus learned on an 8wt. I learned to throw 90 feet pretty quickly (having the build of an NCAA Defensive tackle helps), but have had trouble moving beyond that.

Doug, should I just get a lesson from you in person, or can you guess the main thing I'm doing wrong? My primary fly rod is a Sage 490 LL, and my big rod is a Scott HP 889, thought that might tell you about my casting style and stroke.

Please feel free to start a new topic if you like.

I'd rather hunt fish than bait deer any day.
