Re: How far can you cast?
Under perfect conditions I can lay down a cast which leaves the end of the fly line that is connected to my backing within a few inches from my rod tip.
Notice I stated under perfect conditions. I can not do this on a regular "hey show us how far you can cast" challenge. I have done it a handful of times in the park when practicing.
Learn to Double Haul your cast and you will see your distances increase rather quickly.
