My father and I are getting pretty excited about the casting clinic this weekend in DE. It will be nice to meet those of you who have also registered for the clinic. Anybody up for fishing Saturday night after the clinic? Silly question? Anyone know the good spots up there in Northern DE?? Looks like Indian River inlet is a pretty good drive from New Castle. See you Saturday.

Neil MacKellow is also siked. This will be his biggest seminar ever covering two weekends. We expect to have a visit from the people at Penn. Plus we'll be the first in the US to see the new Penn beach rod series including the "Nomad." The Nomad is a three piece 13 footer that casts and handles like a normal two piece rod.

Mark, maybe he'll let us take turns trying to break it:D. It would be great to have light weight portable rod that can reach out and touch fish. He'll arrive at BWI this evening and we'll head to Delware in the morning.

Due to non-payments, we have two slots for this weekend and a few for next weekend.


Neil, turning on the steam...

As every should know by now, the seminar will cover long range surf/shore fishing, reel tuning, long range rig design and more. We also have 5 or 6 women enrolled, so guys watch out.

Hi Terry - Casting a bait a long way without plastering it all over the beach relies on a smooth aplication of power, a rod that bends progressively and a rig that affords the bait some protection as it flies through the air.
I have two hooks rigs with no clips but short snoods that maintain bait presentation, but in the main an Impact Shield that pins the bait down behind the lead works best for serious long range fishing. However, in the UK the main baits are lugworm and ragworm that are threaded onto the hook and held in place with a bait stop so at all times during the cast it is kept in place behind the shield.
At the end of the day, a smooth cast is essential! Neil

Same way you would treat a virgin, time and patience. It fits, but it's a tight fit. Working on solving that problem as we speak. See you tomorrow in the am.
