I was using a 10`floating poly leader plus 5`fluoro tippet. Mostly use flies in size 5 and smaller. Guess I need to practice my casting with this length of line. Mostly use under hand cast with a Scandi short 390 gr and have no problem. I'm a right hand caster. Maybe I should lift my right hand a little higher (over my head) ?
Well it’s is not a make or break issue, but I would try something more like a 12’ tapered mono leader as the starting option. It is a truism that longer lines require longer strokes, so moving away from canonical underhand style. But in this case it is such a small step up in length.
