Default Re: Woolie Buggers and Slower Rods

You don't say what weight rod you're using so all advice will be a guess. But with a slow rod you might experiment with altering the way you cast. Try using a continuous motion cast -- sometimes called a Belgian Cast -- to smooth out the bump at the end of the backstroke. Start the back cast a little low then, without pausing on the backcast, bring the rod tip up and over in one smooth motion. I've found it works well with 4/5 weight moderate action rods and big hoppers and weighted buggers.
