Shorter the line/up stream wind ... lighten up .. or you'll have the line drapped around your head. The 'Snake,' like the snap T/circle or Steve Choate's 'single spirl. are very dynamic casts. If you're running a short line, you've got to sloooow it up, or the line will not go where you intended.Bob Pauli said:Lee,
Make a smaller oval. Think of a sliding scale with extreme small oval placing the anchor farthest away to extreme large oval placing the anchor upstream.
Adjust the oval to give yourself the anchor point you desire.
