Default Re: Fly cast without flies is great, but...

I'd try up lining the rod by one or two sizes or another line . I tried both the rio steelhead line and and SA nypmh line, both in 7wt on my 6wt nymph rod before I decided on my line. I went with the SA nymph line, it just cast better for me. On my 7wt nymph rod I have run the rio steelhead in 9wt(I was given) and it performs realy nice on it with a heavy rig on the end of the line, I'd also like to try an 8wt SA nymph line on the same 7wt rod to see how it works. I'm no expert but I like playing with different lines with my rods and this is whats worked for me on rods tossing similar nymph rigs you are. I'm not trying to cast 80' with these though.....
