I recently purchased a 2wt. Series 1 Temple Forks rod. I have a 2wt Cortland lazer line on it. It seems to cast well but I can't get the distance I want. Is it just too light a rod? How can I find out what is the maximum distance I can cast this rod? I understand part of it may be due to my casting skill level but I think I am to a point I should be casting most rods close to there potential. I also know that the size of flies I am casting will affect the casting distance as well. I am fishing this rod on small spring creeks with size 16-22 flies. What I want to do is use the rod at slightly larger creeks. This rod was fairly inexpensive but came from a reputable company (Lefty). Would a more expensive rod necessarily perform better? Thanks for any input.
