Or link to one. You'll have to be pretty specific. I think I'm starting to get the hang of drift fishing but have never tried float fishing. Thanks for any knowledge.

I would add to this post - but there is no need.
Not necessarily, if the river's running low and clear, you don't want a humongorious lure. Use a longer rod, and if necessary, add some split shot. At least that's what I do? Might not be right haha. Works for me though.GoDucks1 said:Thanks to all. Back to the weights question, is it the consensus that if you want to cast a spinner/kastmaster/spoon, or whatever, further then you should get a bigger one that weighs more? Again, thanks to all.

I myself use braided line these days. Ever since I switched over to the 10# power pro braided line, I've had no issues with casting distance and spinners (never goin' back to monofilament). It's way thinner and lighter than the mono, and doesn't have the memory like monofilament. I actually had the constant problem of overcasting for a while after the switch because I wasn't used to such ease. The only time I add weight to any lure is in fast moving water > 4 ft deep with a shallow running lure, such as a smaller blue fox for example, in which case I just use small split shot.BobberDown said:i think you are rite in high water go a little bigger but if it is low and clear or you just want to cast farther go to a longer rod that has a lite tipe so it can load the rod with the proper weight like a 9'6" 6-12 that is rated 1/4 to 3/4
and run sey 10 pound mono and it should cast a 1/2 oz castmaster a mile
or at least that has bean my expence longer rod liter line i drop for 12 to 10 or evan 8 pound some lines will cast better than others to the line i realy like is p-line cx preeum inthe moss green it looks like maxima ultra green but it has a much smaller line diamiter by about 4 pounds and is a lot limper grate stuff very good knote strenth to
I hope that is some usfull info
Thanks for readig
