Long time coming. My first weymouth cast meet

Post by sam.truan on Sun Feb 16, 2014 8:33 pm

Finally made it down weymouth casting today all I can say I'm hooked and can't wait to the next. My best measured cast was 187.03 meters. My last cast was about 190ish but didn't measure it Sad. It took me all day to get there most my casts was landing 160-175 m till the last 4 casts. And I improved each time. There was hardly any wind.

This may be a stupid question, if so I am sorry.
Is the casting you do at that sort of event transferable to the beach? 
I guess I mean is it a different technique just for max distance?

Dave

The field version is a upgrade of the beach fishing cast.

Its worth going along a have a look and watch these guys they really hit a lead and give it all they have.  The gear they use in most cases is running on the edge but having said that most of them can put a bait a very long way with fishing tackle and a reduced style.

Cheers Colin..
 Would have a look, but it's a long way to go. And when I get the chance to get to the coast I'm heading for the beach. 
I'm more than happy with the help I've had from you mate, and will be in touch for another lesson (if OK with you).
