    This is a fantastic thread and really have enjoyed reading everyone's comments. Ironic that I have been fiddling around with this A LOT this year.

    Lately I have been experimenting with the 15' type 6, changing casting angles and flies depending on the water until I feel that the swing is in the zone.

    Last year I fiddled a bit with different lengths of t-14 as well, but did not have the success I was hoping for with winter fishing.

    Still learning.

    Andrew,

    I placed the shot about a foot from the fly. No special reason, but recalling spin fishing when I was a kid, I think I put the split shot about a foot above the worm. Not what one would call innovative.

    Thanks! I might just have to give it a try.
