Default Re: piling line

Hi eaglesfn,

I had that problem with my old rod using tapered leaders. I cut off the end and put on a longer piece of tippet and stopped having problems. For some reason I just couldn't get my old rod to turn over flies well using tapered leaders but can pretty easily with my own.

And on overpowering your cast, I've done that a few times and actually had the fly bounce back at me before it hit the water and cause a pileup. That was with big weighted flies though, I don't think I've had it happen with smaller ones.
