In an effort to educate US anglers on the benefits of long distance fishing, Capital Longcaster is happy to announce our long distance surfcasting clinic for people that fish. Following the success of the 2002 “Extreme Casting Clinic”, anglers nationwide have requested a clinic that covers practical pier and surf fishing techniques. As you increase your distance you’ll increase your effective fishing zone and you’ll catch more fish. You’ll learn everything that you need to reach out and touch the big ones including gear selection, surf and pier fishing techniques, the use of long range fishing rigs and more. If you want to catch more fish and learn from an internationally acclaimed world champion instructor, do not miss the 2003 “Going the Distance” fishing clinic. Nearly everyone is capable of catching fish at 400, 500 or even 600 feet; this long distance fishing clinic will show you how.

Hi Oldbay,

We try to keep the classes small to insure that everyone can learn the material. Our main goal is fishing and casting education. If you anyone about last years clinic, you'll understand the need to register early. Early, registration will also get you free copy of Neil MacKellow new video "Going the Distance" which normally sells for $25. Last years students had average increases of over 200 feet. It was a choice between a free lunch and a free video. And, since most anglers carry lunch we chose the video. It includes reel tuning, ground casting, and tournament casting for those people that want to break 700 feet. Delaware anglers have reserved a number of spots in advance. Unless they cancel, only a dozen or so spots are available.

Hi Jack C,

Yes! This clinic is designed for real world fishing conditions. You will learn pier and surf techniques. I plan on using a spinning reel myself. Please bring a long rod. A 12' rod is best.

Did you notice that you get a free copy of Neil's $25 video tape if you register early?

Everyone gets four fully illustrated casting handouts (showing four power casting styles), a full color shockleader knot tying guide and more.

Plus we also have over $200 in door prizes


Casting Guide



Knot Instructions

We also plan to set aside time for an anglers idea exchange where we can exchange fishing tips and techniques. It should be a fun weekend.

It is good to here from you again.

Hi "Jack Crevalle",
I hope you don't mind me answering for James. All tackle is welcome at the Surf Fishing Semimar. If you have any questions on using Spinning Equipment I will be glad to answer them here or at the Semimar. I will be attending the Seminar and I will bring along some of my Spinning Equipment in case anyone has questions.

Hi Mitchman,

You can use rod that you enjoy. We will have a few samples rods for people to try. We'll have our regular fishing gear, plus a few tournament rods for show and tell. Please understand that we are fishermen first and casters second. You will find that a longer rod will perform better with the styles that Neil MacKellow will show us. Any rod rated at 5oz or more should be suitable.


Hi Jag,

The seminar hours are from 8am - 4pm each day. Everyone needs to be there early on the first day for make a reference cast with a 5oz sinker. We will compare your first and last casts to compute your progress over the two day period. This is results oriented seminar.

Let us know if you need any more information. Check our website next week for a complete update on the seminar. A revised version in going online as soon as the Capital Longcasters board approves the content.

HI All,

I’ve received so many direct emails about the best rod and reel to bring to the clinic; I decided to answer it here. If you do not own a long distance rod, you should bring a rod that is 12 feet long. Bring a rod that can safely cast 5 ounces. It is a clinic designed for anglers that use everyday gear in real world situations. You should feel free to bring the reel of your choice. If you bring a conventional reel, please increase the braking power. Add heavy oil, more brake, or more magnets as required to tame the reel. I use 20/50 motor oil for general fishing in my baitcasters.

And, for the pendulum tournament casters that ask why they should attend a clinic for anglers the answer is very simple. The ground cast is the foundation of all swinging styles. Any flaws in your ground cast are magnified in your pendulum. If you are an average healthy and young male tournament caster that can not cast 600-650 feet with a ground cast, you should consider this clinic.
