Re: Need casting help, cast dies
If I understand your comments right the line is extending but the leader and fly end up in a pile. If that is correct you may be using too long of a leader or too light of a leader and tippet. It is all about transferring energy from the fly rod to the fly line to the leader. As the fly line turns over it has to impart energy to the leader butt so the leader will also turn over. Your leader butt may be to lite for the end of the fly line. Are you using a store bought tapered leader?
Tell us what your set up is; your rod, your fly line, the leader and the tippet.
