Re: why cant i cast far!!!!
It is a default response.. but It will be hard to diagnose on a forum.
The one thing I want to say is that (unless you have cash burning a hole) you don't need a new line. I'd try cleaning (and possibly coating) the one you have before laying down the cash for a new one after just a year.... All of this is presuming that you have a quality line to begin with. A dirty line will not shoot as nice as a clean line-- but I've never seen a dirty line not shoot at all....
Also-- about that 60 foot cast.... That's an awfully hard hook set with a fly rod and fly line. There are plenty of fish within the 30 foot cast that you can make.
