Default Re: I need more distance

Flymoron,
Please don't take this the wrong way but where do you need to cast 75ft on the Little Red River. I have been fishing that river for 35+ years and have NEVER had to cast 75ft. A 50ft cast is about the longest I've ever had to make there and thats only when they are running 2 units out of the dam & we are throwing big streamers into back pockets up in feeder creeks. If you really just want to cast that far then u might want to look at a faster rod or shooting head as already advised...that is if your technique is spot on. My main streamer rod for the LR is a BVK 6wt with a 28ft (200 grain) sink tip. During winter I'll sometimes use an 8wt because I'm throwing HUGE streamers for HUGE browns.

Good luck!
Carlton
