Default Re: What is considered a far cast?

I agree with the 80 foot mark as a long cast. WF fly line lengths vary but the average would be 90 feet. A Rio gold is 90 ft and a Rio GRand is 100 ft. Orvis vary from 90 for 10 to 7 Wt and 105 for 8 wt and above. Cortland lines are 90 ft.

To cast the entire fly line you would need about a 105 - 108 ft cast, 90 foot for the fly line, 9 ft for the fly rod and 9 feet for the leader. That is 108 feet.
