    You are free to think and do as you please when it comes to covering water. Your method, as you describe, seems to be way off from anything I have seen. Maybe I need to get out more, because I have yet to see anyone cover runs in the manner you suggest.

    Good call; I think they're called a 'Flash fly.' Used up in Alaska?

    Well when using a one hander rod for trout fishing the strip in line, short cast, cast longer, etc., is a very common practice. That said, the nature of a full on 2hander just really doesn't lend itself to the practice. Hence the shorter 'switch rods' that can be as short as 10 up to (longest I've seen) 11.5 feet.

    We have one very long run here on the upper Rogue (Denmon Bar to some, Modoc Ponds to others) that's at least 300+ yards long and the fishing conditions change dramatically as you move down the run. Top 40 - 50 foot cast is all you really need. Center section and 30 feet is excessive. Bottom section you'd better be able to 'chuck line!'
