Re: How far "should" I cast?
You guys can cast rings around me. I'm lucky if I can get a good solid 50' cast with a double haul on the streams I fish. I've taken and taped 90' and that's a long way, man. Fortunately for me, I don't have to cast that far or I'd be depressed. Generally, when you're casting far you're generating line speed based on solid technique and shooting line more than laying it down, which is what I'm generally doing. I'm not a very good line shooter.
Eh, another thing to work on and why I stick to single handed rods. Any time I have one in my hand I try and improve on various aspects of my cast to make me a more complete caster and fisheman.
