Chris If you have a tip flex or faster rod a you should be able to lay out a sweet roll cast of 25' or more. another nice thing about a roll cast is if you are in tighter/smaller water you can load a faster rod more easily and snap out nice short casts with them. I find it a good way to manage heavier weighted/beadhead flies.

John Desjardins My own experience with this sort of problem is that most of the time it's caused by a tailing loop. With the dry flies did you get knots in the leader? In my case it is caused by breaking (bending) my wrist at the end of the casting stroke.

There are two other 2 ways I've seen your problem; when fishing a heavily weighted fly on a long thin leader, e.g. #4 woolly bugger on a 12' 6X leader, or when I used a braided loop connector and it slipped partially off the line.

I hope this helps.

saltRon Vic ---- Check out your but to tipit selection if you are tying you own if not depends on speed of presentation,type of action in your rod and possibly the original leader you chose for the dry fly.
Remember you are casting the line not the weighted fly.

Use of weighted nymph patterns?

I just learned how to cast a fly. And even caught 6 trout on my fly rod. I have no problems with dry flies.
But when I try use beadheads and things like this my line won't go straignt ahead. The tip section falls down to the water and leader tangles around it. I use 5wt rod and line.
What is right technique for casting weighted nymphs?
