Re: How far can you cast?
Hi to all,
I added in the 50' to 70' range but it is not in sequence. This is probably the range that most experience casters can reach.
I assume these are fishing distances and in that case these distances include a leader and rod. So if you have a 9' leader and a 9' fly rod a 90' cast is only 72' of fly line. A full line cast including the leader and rod is a 108' cast. A cast of the full line and some backing would be in the 119' range. There are just a few competition casters that can cast 120' with a 5wt rod and a WF fly line and leader.
So maybe we should know what equipment is being used. For instance, a Spey rod can make a 80' cast with ease.
