Default Re: casting techniques

Hi,

If you are stripping line in until you are really close to the line / leader connection...........Try this; shake the rod tip and allow the weight of the line to pull a fair quantity of line back out through the guides and tip top. Once you have a nice bunch of it on the water execute a roll cast but stop the rod tip high and be prepared to back cast. You may still need at least one false cast depending on the distance you are fishing but this should help with the problem. As for the line getting caught when you try to shoot; try holding the line in large loose coils and either let one at a time go on false casts or drop the bunch when you shoot the works.
