Default Re: Roll Casting question

You can shoot line with a roll cast if you practice (like you would with a double hander rod and a shooting heead). Practice practice practice is what is needed.

For trout fishing, i've tended to prefer double taper lines for a long time. For bigger rods though - bass, steelhead, etc - a WF makes more sense, as you can roll cast them, or if you need, you can punch them into a wind, and firing heavy flies is easier with a WF type line.
Floggin' Water since I was 3. Have you hugged a fish today?
