Default Re: Roll Casting for Accuracy and Distance

My rod of choice right now is a 6wt 7'10", although it casts very well, I found it is hard to be consistent in accuracy and distance. It needs plenty of fly line to turn over, or the cast will just pile up.
I also need to stop my forward cast very high almost at 11 o'clock and angle it at 60 with more snap on the wrist to cast only ok.

I found out that a single hand T-snap, snake roll or dynamic roll casts are better than the regular roll.

Now is it just my bad technique or is it just the nature of shorter fly rod?
