My best guess is you are able to cast farther with a longer rod.

You're right, Bryan. You can really chuck those 'chovies and small sardines a long way with an 8 foot or longer rod or when you want your surface jig a long way out from the boat. It also makes it easier to go over the top of shorter rods when following your fish down the rail.
