grundy is on a distinguished road
Default Is there a limit?

To how far you can cast without a haul, or shooting line? I've been practicing with a 9' 5wt with 5wt wf-f line. I can cast the line with about 3' of running line past the end of the rod tip. Anymore line than this and I cannot keep my backcast off the grass, because I start to open my stroke too far, but am unable to generate enough speed with a smaller stroke. Maybe I'm about at the limt, and to get more distance will need to start using a haul, or practice shooting line.

Thanks in advance.

Brian
