casting on my field

Post by Dorset Jon Boy on Sun May 05, 2013 9:21 pm

been practicing for past couple of weeks using both my kompressor match and tip tornado sport paired with the penn 515mag2 and using a 5oz in a ball taped up. I have got pretty good at the pendulum cast now but seem to be hitting better distance with off the ground casting?

Careful what you are doing casting towards houses buddy - one crack off and into the houses and you will possibly be spending a night in B&B provided by the Old Bill...... and there's always some twot looking for 'if there's blame there's a claim'

John you are a bit close to those homes !! you really need a radius of about 300 yds clear of danger around you to be safe or be a member of the Angling Trust for their Insurance cover!!!!

No need to throw out your toys.
If one person has a wayward cast that close to houses it will have a negative affect to us all.
You are probably holding back in you head knowing you are that close too houses and if it goes wrong it doesnt matter if you "run" your manor as the boys in blue dont care. Why dont you try it on a deserted beach and see if your still holding back????

this is one of my best casts with pendulum(not great i know)



this is my best off the ground(still crap compared to most)


i know the distance is correct on the off the ground as the wind pushed it into the tree's and i lined up the house, but the pendulum is a guess as to where exact it landed, so plus or minus 5-10yards. My main problem is with the power, i know i can do it just something keeps holding me back(in my head) from proper hitting it even when on the beach, wondering if anyone else has this problem? will try getting a couple of vids up tomorrow afro



Funny as feck - not the 1st of April I know, but for a moment - just a moment - I thought you were serious!



Unfortunately the change of casting postion to closer to the houses in the second picture gave it away...beauty..that is without a doubt the best wind up yet on this forum - well done!! cheers affraid cheers

pendulum all the way.
that's why I keep away from others, but if people get near me on my right hand side I warn them.

I cast with people around me. If it worries them then there is plenty of room for them to move to..

I'm always worried about casting when others are near me had few leads snap off., but I go nice slow on the swing and slight turn then try give it some power at last moment,, if it snaps or goes wrong it does,, just got to keep working at it

I only do overhead thump, but today put on a new pully rig, tied with decent components, and first cast the main swivel snapped. The body was cracked, so you never know.

I don't like people doing pendulum next to me, the damage a grip lead hitting you full pelt would do would not be pretty!

dont get too close then si is the secret. i do a full pendulum swing but i alawys walk a good long distance on the beach to get away from everyone. i have had instances where people have turned up and parked their asses literally yards from where i am casting. i have given polite warnings to them about the dangers and to move a good distance away. if they then choose to stay near me after that and get a lead in the head then so be it.  Very Happy

Exactly Jules. 18 miles of beach and 2 ft either side of you seems fairly pointless

I think Si is referring to some of the B.C marks he fishes? Its difficult when a reef/rock mark can only hold a handful of anglers, that's why I developed a layback cast with a swing and only a slight turn, its safer on slippery marks also. Totally agree with you about Chesil though... Wink
