How far should I be able to cast?
Ok, the obvious answer is something on the order of "If you can cover the fish, you can cast far enough."
My question relates more to what the competent caster should be able to achieve with a 13ft 7 wt rod. I can cast relatively comfortably to about 75ft, and it does not seem to matter whether I am using a compact Scandi, Skagit, or Delta Spey. I am not terribly experienced at this, so I am questioning my technique, to say the least. Seems to me that there should be some difference in the easily achievable distances, using those different lines. After watching a few Spey fishing / steelhead fishing videos, I got to wondering, once again, how far a reasonably competent angler should be able to cast with, say, a 13ft vs a 15ft rod.
So, I decided to ask the experts!
BTW, I did a search, but either could not come up with an appropriate search term, or this hasn't been previously addressed (unlikely).
I can't understand why some folks think a drink can is harder to carry out when it is empty than it was to carry in when it was full.
