Absolutely right on about most folks new to casting long-bellies trunking by using too much bottom hand! Heck, I've seen most new spey casters \being prone to trunking regardless of the belly length being used.

Another common error I've seen with newcomers to long-bellies is hitting the rod hard on the initial forward motion instead of accelarating smoothly into a hard stop with the power snap at the end of the foward spey.

I suppose I need to practice using the snake roll with long bellies and sink tips instead of using my preferrence, the double spey.
