The Long Long Rod

I love the roll cast. It was the first cast I could do. I broke my mother's windshield overhead casting when I was first learning how to cast. I lived in fear of overhead casting additionally because I often hit myself in the back of the head with clouser minnows when I fished the salt primarily with a Walmart 5wt and broken single action reel.

The double haul is a dangerous thing when the fly weighs more than the line beyond the tiptop!

I came to doublehand rods as a solution to the problems of constantly almost hitting people on my backcast while fishing in NYC.

I suggest you try them, too.
