I'm looking for an information source on the different casting styles that I've read about - pendulum, off the ground, UNI-Tech,....

I have my own styles for low and high reel positions and can cover a decent (unmeasured) distance, but I know I can get out there further.

Where should I look for information I can use to improve my style? It's not easy for me to travel to tournaments or practices.

I really appreciated the welcome to the board and wish you all a peaceful holiday, and a New Year full of personal bests . . .

fishrung. if you go to the breakaway board, there is a video prepared by nick meyer. he also stars in it. it does show you the different ways to cast. also neil mac kellow has one. either or both will be of value.

Okay Cdog, or should I say Santa. I see you're busy filling last minute Xmas wishes.
or
As usual, seems you wanna be prepared well in advance. Could it be you're brushing up to join the local fire dept. You know, for next year's annual neighborhood Holiday Greeting Patrol. ;)

Billr, Yep, you're right. Cross the IC from Morehead City and you're there. Fort Macon, with its rock jetties is at the north end. I use the Oceanana Pier occasionally, but prefer the beach.
