Thumbs up Re: Roll casting help needed

In my experience, the only thing I'd add to what Doug has described is that the longer distance you're rolling your cast, the higher I try and keep the loop coming off the rod tip on the forward cast. Do this by stopping your rod tip high at the end of a firm forward cast. It keeps the roll (loop)high coming across the water giving you a longer lasting roll that still has enough umpf to lift and lay out the fly at the end. Otherwise, I've found my loops start collapsing too soon and they lack the power to finish. As you experiment with this on the water, I believe you'll see what I'm describing. Hope this helps.
