andy, it is good to hear from you buddy. hope all is well at home.
it was just my day. the casting gods were with me. i hit three over 600' that day. and only one off the court.
the rod i am sing is the new quattro for backcasting and the reel is the Abu sports rocket.
frankly, i must share any accolcades with the guys that provide with me support day in and day out.
the good training that you and peter gave during the x-casting clinic is turning out to be invaluable. james is a great motivator. earl is a great coach. charlie is a raconteur and trainer. bob provides earnest insight and critigue. jimmy gives me technical support and sage counsel. anthony (remedial tony) is my nemesis. [incidentally everyone at sportscast is always encouraging me to excell]
so you can see i am surrouonded by a great cast of characters.
so it is all good.

sir backcaster :D

Ralph,

That's right, I don't like you and never have liked you. I think that your sinkers were corked. How about a beer after work, it cinco de mayo.

Ralph,

Reading this has described what casting is all about - Friendship, Encouragement and most of all Enjoyment.

Looks like you've got all these.

Well I hope that you exceed at the Nationals.

Led.

Well I can guarantee that is one that you will not see being used on Cape Point very often :D

My back and shoulders hurt from just watching him do that. :eek:

Threw 10 and 12 oz. with bait on the north beach last fall and winter for stripers and drum. Given the proper space and I avoid crowds like SARS, a very easy cast to throw a lot of weight a very long way, it the need arises. My one concern was the reel has to be in the low position. After watching South Africans catch sharks with the low reel position, drum and stripers were not a problem.
