Default Re: Inexperienced caster seems troubleshooting

Well I'm definitely not blaming the rod. Only a fool blames his equipment for his failings. Its just something I noticed about that particular rod, granted i've only ever tried a friend of mine's 8 wt, and I didn't have the same issue with his rod. I'm just wondering if there is some small issue in my cast that may be amplified by the soft action on my rod. I did notice that it is worse when I was trying to get the line out a bit further, so slowing things down makes sense. Thanks for the tips fellas, I'll try to really be aware of what I'm doing next time out and analyze my cast, as well as he water. I just get so excited when I get a good fishing day, I tend to over do it a bit!
