With spey casting you won't have any trouble getting past 60' either. You have 9' of leader, 8' of rod and 45.5 feet of head. Just rolling the head out puts you in the ball park 62'. Shoot any line at all and you are past the 60' mark by a ways.

Longer rods are always better when it comes to any form of roll casting, but a short rod can be made to work. Last time I fished, I was doing some single handed spey casts with my 6'9" glass 5wt.

My 10' 5wt handles them MUCH better though.

Single-handed spey casts are the bomb when fishing small streams where hardly anything but roll casts are possible. A snake roll lets you change direction and do the cast in one move without crossing the rod and line and tangling them. These single hand spey casts can be done with normal lines on any size rod. Just the ticket for small water and short rods.

Add a haul and the shorter rods become little rocket launchers.
