The comments above are correct. I used it up in Quebec...but a short rod... 5wt and under and flex rod and in "extreme" tight situations...Overhanging branches...no room to back cast or even roll cast... Combine it with dapping which also works if you can get to the water line on a bank though underbrush.... But it does not shoot line. I suppose with a stiff rod you might get a couple inches out, but short accuracy is key and at obviuosly short distances. I found that...if in the right position... a drift into the spot is a better approach., otherwise you will find that you will tangle in branches if too tight.JMHO.
