Default Re: Casting dilemma

"I have been practicing in back yard w my
7'6" 3 wt ( almost everything I do is small creeks- smallmouth. Panfish....)"

I think Post # 2 by BFA may have nailed it. A rod that size has major application limitations ... and you may well have gone past that point. Other thought is 'grass casting' with a bit of fluff is very different from 'water loading.'

Bottom line is your rod is/was designed for very small flies fished in tight quarters. And that's not what you're trying to accomplish?
