Casting with the 10wt tfo with a Sage 3210 reel I hooked one in the lips and it tore across the pond.i decided that I needed a little more drag, three clicks tighter and there 13 lb tippet broke. My bad! One click at a time from now on!

Bad knots or bad line......I don't think you can't pull 13 lbs with that rod  unless it is pointed at the fish. Hook a scale to your rod and try.

Check your drag for smashed washers if its a disc drag reel. I always try to loosen it after every trip so as to not put any flat spots in the disc. That can cause uneven pressure and pop the line like a twig.

So damn hot down here in the flatlands. Yesterday I washed three fly lines and ordered a stripping basket as this carp fishing from the bank is taking a tole on the lines.

I came across some "cloppers" late last summer on a small river that were rising to suck on blobs of algae floating by.  I did a quick inspection of the green snooty globs looking for midges or some other insect.  I found nothing.  I tried several beetles, hoppers, etc.  nothing.  Drove me mad...

Can't speak about the New, but dam stacking in rivers I know is a seasonal thing.
