Default Re: Accuracy casting

Well, I'm bream fishing using subsurface buggers. My leader is just a piece of mono, 6lb, about 5ft long. Yes, I know this is not kosher but hey it's just bream. (am I being too lazy here?) But I do like my accuracy. Like when casting to a stump and I want to place the fly up close so it will fall by the trunk. It may be more wind than anything but I'm guessing here. I don't have much luck using a longer leader, it just goes farther away than I want it too and seems much harder to cast. I don't make long cast as most time I'm in a boat. (hence the lawn chair).
Thanks guys for your input, it is appreciated.
