So... I've started to settle in with my spey setup (7126 TCX/550gr Skagit flight) and was out fishing... i was having difficulty casting heavily weighted intruders and a T-17 10' tip. The casts were not pulling the fly out of the water cleanly and the max distance i was getting was about 50-60 feet. my casting was fine earlier with 11' of T14, a 6' leader and a moderately weighted intruder. (like the signature intruders from solitude fly company) if i want to fish such heavy gear and still cast a decent distance with reasonable accuracy, what would my best course of action be? to buy a new and heavier skagit head, buy a heavier rod like an 8wt in the 12-14 foot range or get casting lessons? or a combination of 2 of them? i'm really quite clueless and not too sure what i should do to be able to fish heavy tips e.g. 12-14ft T-14 or 10ft T-17. Thanks in advance for all the advice!
