Default Re: World record distance WF 5wt?

Indeed DD, indeed. Mono-on- mono as it were. Given most single hander lines are 'only' 90' without modification .... But I did and I was consistently out at 115' with Jato Rocket asst. Flames rather singe your hair but worth it for that far out 'rise.'

Kidding aside, many of you many know (or know of) Steve Choate - hope I've got the spelling right. Steve could clear a standard fly line and then some cast after cast. With a 2-hander? 150' was a shortie- he, and Dr. Way Yin, spliced in additional shooting line. Both needed it. Steve came in first in, the then, Musto 2-hander comp. Dr. Yin was third twice. Back story to Way is someone (forgot his reel) in one of the Comps and Way lent him his reel/line .... first place.

He was third again .... but he only used 15 foot rods vs. 18's.
