Default Re: Need help with shooting line

Sounds like a bass bug tapered fly line is ur best bet. Rio has a good one. Check the line wieght on ur rod. If it says 7/8, go with the 8. There's some good videos on utube. If you watch a good caster cast, he doesn't watch his line. It's muscle memory and feel when u cast. U need to develop what a good cast feels like. This will "help" u when ur in the wind or casting big bugs. Check out the mechanics of the cast. Tight loops, line speed, reduced drag (good line)and loading ur rod gets u distance. A properly sized leader helps turn the bug. You should always practice with a bit of yard on a leader. Bass bugs just catch a lot of wind. It's all part of the equation of turning the loop.
