I've only been fly fishing for 3 years now & am still learning, like everyone has said already, timing is key, I used to just pound on the rod to make a 50-60 foot cast, now with better timing it is so much easier to cast 50-60 feet.
I also use a 10' rod, one thing I have found to help me with shorter casts is to use a side cast with the rod almost parallel with the water, not sure why it works, but it does for me.

Good luck!
