You could. With a shorter line:clown: But here's some stuff that may help. As stated, you don't need more than 4 to 5 feet of level leader with a sinking line. Even a solid color sinking line. I generally fish 6 to 7 because I dink around trying different flies, and if I start with 5 feet, between cutting back for fish teeth roughing up the knot area, and swapping flies, I'm down to 3 feet pretty quickly, and that's getting too short for my comfort level. In crazy wind conditions or really heavy flies, aim for the 5 foot mark which will be nice and short, and let you change flies a few times before adding leader. Your life will be easier. Now the casting approach. Figure out where your best casts come with that line in terms of how much running line, or socalled "overhang" out of the tip top. It'll vary from line to line, rod to rod etc. But it's probably between 1 foot and 5 feet. Now extend that much line out of the tip top. Raise the rod to the "locked and loaded, ready for the forward cast position". Now where you can see it in your peripheral vision by the side of your face, mark a 4 inch long section of your line with magic marker. Let it dry thoroughly before respooling, and if you have a cat do it in a locked room away from the cat until everything is dry and respooled. Trust me on that last part bawling: The reason you marked your line is that with practice you can learn exactly how much of your too-long line you CAN roll to the surface in one shot and have it laying perfectly straight out in front of you for pickup. You can then learn to lay your rod a little flat on the backcast and slip line until your eye catches that marked section. You then trap the line, pause for the load, and forward cast. It'll take practice and unless you do it alot you won't be perfect, but if you're competent you can probably average 80 percent, single roll, one backcast, shoot. It does add line speed to your backcast, which can introduce shock with heavy weighted flies, but you can live with that. That's how I use my outbounds. It works, but it's WORK! I'd rather use a shorter line.
