Ok, so I have finally gotten to the point where I can shoot a fair amount of line, but I am struggling a bit with the loose line between the bottom stripping guide and the reel. I fish a Rio Skagit which has a bright yellow head and forward taper, followed by a short black section at the rear which then joins the yellow running line. I can get a good pick up and anchor set when I start with a foot or so of the black section outside the rod tip, but that leaves me with several yards of loose line between the bottom stripping guide and the reel when I start my cast. If I let it drag in the current below me, it "grabs" the water and limits the length of my cast. Much of the time, I can coil it in loose loops, pin it against the grips with both the upper and lower hand, and shoot the whole mess. However, more often than I like, it gets caught up on a finger (or itself). So, what is the proper way to manage that line before I shoot it?
