Longer rod troubles
I recently bought an 8'6 redington crosswater since my 8foot cortland snapped. I got 8'6 because I figured I could cast farther with a longer rod. But I've never owned an 8'6 before, and am having trouble getting out there like I'd like to. Any tips or pointers?
FYI: I use WF line and a large arbor with a 7 foot leader when I practice.
