Default Re: How far can you cast?

Most people say all fish are caught within 50 to 60 feet, that is because they can't cast any further. I have cast a full line before with ideal conditions but my average cast is around 85' or 75' into the wind. Saltwater flyfishing from the surf is a distance game. It is all technique, I am self taught with the help of books and dvd's. i have found the best dvd is saltwater flycasting 10 steps to distance and power by George Roberts, this dvd has given me the abilty to evaluate my cast, find my faults and correct them. Fishing big flies in the wind is a challenge, but is also very rewarding at times. My advice to anyone looking to increase thier casting distance would be to refine your technique and you will be able to make effortless cast of great distance.
