Default Re: casting distance

It all depends where I'm fishing and what rod I'm using. With my 5'8" 4wt, I'm normally casting less than 40 or 50 ft. With my 8'9" model, I'll extend my reach by 60 or 70 ft.

When I had my 7'6" 4wt, I was breaking the 65 or 70 foot mark while practice casting. I was measuring these casts with a yardstick for accuracy.

On a boat ramp, dam, dock, or private bridge (or other elevated structure), I'll try to cast the entire flyline for fun!

Cheers,

Robert
