I tend to agree with all that has been written before excepting the above.
Get some casting lessons from a long bellied caster not someone who teaches with a windcutter or Loop line once you have learnt to Speycast you can start messing with specialist lines.

If you want depth you should buy a sinker or two of various sink rates tips are terrible things to cast and fish with.
