BTW I got a nice yellow undercoating on my jeep last week no thanks to PENNDOT. I am still sick to my stomach about it. Got it off the paint, but the undercarriage is a MESS. The worst part about it is my lease is up in a few months and I HAVE to get it cleaned up before then. I'm going to miss my JEEP

I was gonna tell you about my 88 cherokee sport (2 door) I had with a 3inch lift but it breaks my heart to talk about it....I loved that truck.

I had the same problem with the tippet until I realized the tippet was too small.

A few years ago, I was watching a fly fishing show on tv. The last five minutes of the show had a casting segment. The first thing the instructor reccomended was stretching the fly line. He pulled the line out to the backing and held the end of the fly line (at leader) while an #OOPS#istant stretched it at the half-way point. I try to do this everytime I hit the water with a friend to keep my line straight.

Thanks GreengWeenie for the idea of using the current to straighten the fly line.

I don't care if you have been doing it that way for a hundred years, that doesn't mean that is the best way to do it!

If it makes you feel any better, my Expedition got a blast of white polka-dots in the rear wheel wells and under-carriage courtesy of the same folks.

Yeah, tippet too small and/or long for the fly you are using. Sometimes, an unbalanced fly (one wing longer than another, for instance) will do that to any tippet. Best solution is to fix the problem, use a more balanced fly, a bigger tippet, or a shorter tippet. Sometimes, in overly demanding situations, I opt for the longer tippet and live with the problem. For a while you can alleviate it somewhat by running the tippet through a leader straightener, or even your fingers, to get the twists out. Eventually, though, you just replace the tippet.
