Default Re: Two-handed Overhead casting

I'm using 65' belly lines with tapered tips so I need room or it's a no go. On the bright side I am reaching 90 - 100 foot with traditional casts if I really need that distance. I do prefer the traditional casts or touch & go style cast above overhead casting but there is definitely a time and place for this tactic.

Fish love the long rods
