Default Re: What am I doing wrong???

I've tried overloading a couple of rods. I overlined a 5wt and an 8wt rod in years past and went right back to the correct wt for the rod. I kept thinking it would be easier to load and throw, but in the end it just made my casting worse then it already was. Now I tried this after fly fishing for many years with matching fly line, don't know if that was a difference or not, but I'm sure it was. I also like using fast action rods the most. Don't know if I recommend it or not, but I say if you think it helps your casting and doesn't break your rod, then go for it.
