Default Re: sharp hooks

Dan, i'm using a skagit flight 450gr @ 24' paired with a 15' Rio type 6 sink tip, with a 4' leader to the fly. i was using the flight with 10' MOW tip but was told by Bob Pauli to try the 15' to eliminate blown casts. i'm still getting used to the extra 5' of sink tip. my anchor seems to really Stick on my forward cast.( not allowing the cast to shoot out.) when i do my snap T the tip is going upstream but it seems to sink quicker than my T-11 did. i was trying to speed up my sweep to swing this tip around. i'm thinking this extra length is where my problem lies. my last time out i was getting 93' out without any problems. after a few days off i wasn't casting the same way? but it slowly gets better as the day goes along.
