+1 ........I've been doing alot of warm water fishing this summer for the first time in a few years. Pike, smallmouth, Largemouth etc. Bombing out 60 to 70 ft casts with large streamers and bugs is pretty much the norm while blind casting the rapids and large weedbeds of the rivers ive been fishing. Keep practicing and definately learn how to double haul. It will definately also help you on those windy days that knock down a 40 foot cast to a 20.
