New comers are welcome. Rumor has it that Roy Yarmouth and his friend Chite Shuvler will be there also.

Hi Mitchman,

These free classes are for anyone that wants to reach more fish. Sandy Point State Park (SPSP) is good example of why distance counts. The people that cast 300 feet and less catch small perch and spots at while those that cast over 300 feet catch fat juicy Croakers, Stripers, Flounder, Etc. This not true of all fishing at SPSP, but it does illustrate the point. Take a look at the video on this forum to get feel of what we do at practice. Most people gain from 100 to 200 feet the first day.

I think I may come this week

I know you've posted this a million times, but how do I get to kenilworth park? I'm up near Rockville (I270).

Also, my only 12' is an ugly stick and I have found I can cast just as far with my 11' rod becuase the tip on the ugly is too flexible. Should I just bring the 11' rod?

Found directions, but a question

I found this in an earlier thread:
From the North: From I-95/495 South (towards Richmond) take Exit 22 on to the Baltimore/Washington Parkway/I-295 South. This turns into Kenilworth Ave. Exit at Burroughs/Minnesota. At the five way stop Kenilworth Park is to your Right. We use the first two fields on the right.

But, when I exit at Burroughs/Minnesota Ave, is that a right turn or a left? Also, is there parking right at the park?

Sorry, I avoid DC like the plague. Even Rockville is too much city for me.

Sorry I can't make the second session this Saturday. It's my wife's birthday and she has other plans. (No replies about who's the boss necessary.....we know it's her ;) ) I have been working on what I learned last week and have added about 50 more feet to my casts. I have a long way to go but at least I know what to work on.

It was nice meeting all the casters that came out for the free casting lessons at Kenilworth Park this weekend!

A special thanks to all those that stayed until way past 12:00. I hope the added information helps.

Here are the new video clips from the free casting lessons on July 26, 2003. Six or seven people reached a new personal best. This week we covered the cast in more detail. It was nice to see so many new faces. People asked lots of great questions. They now have a better understanding of how and why things work. We had a surprise visit from Longcaster. Most people were surprised to see how little effort it takes to increase their distance. We had three ladies this wee, WOW!

We covered safety and shockleaders, locking the drag on a spinning reel to avoid finger cuts, basic reel tuning, and the importance of relaxing to achieve greater distance. It was nice to see so many people improve in just one day.

Dcfishman,
tame that reel and I'll see you at the Delaware casting seminar in two weeks.
Naiad,
you are kicking butt, don't stop now. You've doubled your distance in just one week. You show be very proud.
HuskyMd,
Thanks for coming out. Don't look back, Andy is pushing up on you.
Andy,
for a new angler, you had some very good casts.
Jangwuah,
practice with half power until you improve your aim. Your best cast were really flying.
JohnR,
relax and let it fly.
Everyone else,
look high and reach for the clouds. Thanks for giving my Saturday mornings real meaning. Most of you can expect to add another 100 feet with just a few more lessons. Forget distance for now. Concentrate on form and practice at the water; you'll have more fun and catch more fish.

Thanks to LongRanger, Longcaster, Aero, and everybody. Was out for my first time saturday. On my second cast, I improved approximately 75 feet to about 350. I can smell the croakers cookin' :D . I'm anxious to try with my 12ft rod.

Thanks again.
