Default Re: I need more distance

To my mind the question is do you want/need to throw that far because what's going to happen when you get your fly there? Can you control the line, feel the take, and set the hook? With an eight and a half foot rod on a swift stream I know I can't, even if I might be able to ape arm a fly that far like I was throwing a deceiver to tarpon on the flats, (it wouldn't be a pretty cast).
