Default Re: Double Haul.... Won't.....

I was afraid of that. I use the original line that came on my 12 year old set up for yard practice. Never been cleaned or dressed, and I don't use a leader/tippet. I am probably not benefiting myself any doing this, since it is probably no where near the condition of a new, properly cared for line. I would really hate to have my pretty new white line out in the grass and get it messed up, since replacements are running upwards of $80 now.

The noise! I found this video. This is the noise I am hearing from my rod. And I am no where near the power or skill level of this guy. Probably never will be either. But no luck on the whistle of the fly/airborne line.
