220m over grass is a long way!!

Post by Record Eater on Mon Feb 21, 2011 10:46 am

Bit of an eye opener watching people fling leads across this field!!!!!!..the top casters were getting between the 220m flag and the fence line.....follow the tapes out and you'll see the flags in the distance!!!!



Tom at inside of the 160m mark....he'd walked back a bit before the photo!!.....showing the casting point....the little yellow mark above his left (right as you look!!) shoulder!!!!



Personally I'd be chuffed if I could chuck it even as far as Tom...respectable distance that!!! ..but I know I can't..unfortunately I wasn't wrong with my guesstimate of a 100yards max on the beach ....with a good following wind!!! Laughing

It's always easier when I cast out from a high point on Chesil than you fellas do on flat grass not worthy I'm tempted to come up and watch some time but it will take a lot to get me showing off my finest OTG fixed-spool cast Smile

Well I can recommend getting your turf tackle out for a bit of field fishing if you want to improve your casting!! Laughing

its a good job you took the photo from that perspective otherwise you'd never have seen tom from the other way.

That's all i do/use Martyn, imo at the "entry level" distances it's more about getting the technique right than it is about using multis and pendulum casts.

Come down to the next one - it's an enjoyable day.

Am i imagining things or does that court look a little narrower than usual? Scratch that i've just noticed the third tape in the bottom right corner. Very Happy
