Default Re: What am I doing wrong???

I would over load your rod again.There are many people who will tell you never to do this,I'm not one of them.I fail to see the harm in overloading a rod that want's to be overloaded!The fact is, some rod's DO fish better overloaded,I have seen this hundreds of times.If you are dead set against overloading then try to keep a eye on what your line is doing on the back cast,70' down to 20' sounds like a drastic casting error.Once you timing is good it's good,but will change on every rod or even with different line,the trick is to learn to adapt you timing to please the rod you are useing.
Take Care
