    Longer casting and mending, easier for dead-drift high-stick nymphing, more difficult to keep out of bushes and overhanging branches, more difficult to make precise casts close in.

    Thank's for the replies. I'll practice with my casting. AS far as leaders, I don't keep them short using wet's an streamers. What is a good set up you all would recomend. I'm learning a lot from this forum.
