Default Re: How far can you cast?

Because I fish for Stripers I have had to learn to long cast. I took a leason from Steve Rajeff who taught me to double haul. I use a G.Loomis Cross Currant 9' 9" 8wt with SA Mastery Streamer Express and put out 75 to 85' on a good day. However, this type of casting wares me out after about an hour or so. On my 'Loomis GLX 9' 7wt I can hit 60-75' all day for LM and SM and that I enjoy more. I work out at the gym and do a lot of arm and back work to be able to do this, but at 55 it's starting to ware me out. A little!
