Default Re: Accuracy casting

Hmmm....It could be that the leader is too light or too long. Dropping the
rod tip before the leader straightens completely could cause the line to
lay out straight, but kill the energy transfer to the leader. Try aiming
2-3 feet above the the lawn/water. A 7 1/2 foot 4x leader may help matters
as well. I really like knotted leaders for better turnover.
