Re: Where am I going wrong?
On top of the casting advice given above, you might want to try a short, stiff leader rather than the furled. I like furled leaders but not for bobber nymphing. If you do not normally tie your own leaders, do not fret. Here is a very easy semi-homemade leader: buy a 7' leader tapered down to 3x. Cut back 4' and tie on one foot of 3X. Then tie on 3' of tippet, like 4X or 5X fluorocarbon. The reason for the 1 foot section is so you simply know where the butt section ends and have a place to tie on a new tippet after it gets too short without cutting any more of the butt section back. You can completely eliminate it if you want to.
