    Practice by pantomiming the double haul stroke for a few evenings sat at home, that way youll pick it up in minutes when you practice with an actual line... its really easy once you feel the correct timing/rhythm.

    That's the way to go. You will learn so much in such a short time that you will wonder why you never did it before. What James didn't mention is that it will only cost a fraction of the price of a casting lesson.

I have a #6 rod that is reasonably fast, if I sling an outbound short head #6 line on it will it give me another 20ft without much change to my cast?

    Dave, if you can put it out 50 odd ft with the #5, upping to a #6 with relevant #6 line, getting an extra 20ft should be achievable with no change in style.
    Remember we are only talking about the difference between say 18 yards (54 ft) and 23 yards (69 ft).
    Upping one line rating, especially from #5 to #6, using your current casting style should achieve this.
    As you say, try it on the grass!

    How did you get on with finding some extra distance?
