Default Re: acceptable distance for 9' 5 wt.

During the coarse of the day today, I've written and not submitted this post 4 times.
I didn't want to be the heavy.

The truth is that on stream a cast of 25' to 45 feet is most often all that you'll ever need. But if you can't cast 60-65 feet in an open area with no pressure,... you need more practice.
I'm not talking a high end rod either. Any POS rod.... any size... that's the norm
