hey there casters. we will be casting wednesday afternoon from about 2pm till its too dark to see. how do you get to the feild?

follow kempsville rd like your going towards chesapeake. when you get to centerville turnpike take a left. follow the rd about 5 miles or so. you'll go over a draw bridge. keep going until you see a small produce stand on the left side of the rd (its in front of a farm house) look to the right and you'll see the feild. depending on which way the wind is blowing you'll see me or rolland out there.

bring your surf rod or long casting rod and we'll have some fun and try to learn something from each other.

of course in case of foul weather (rain or snow) thats the only thing that will keep us from being there. come on out.

Cdog, if you are heading toward the beach on 264, get off at the Witchduck exit, and take a left at the light onto Witchduck Rd. Keep going down Witchduck and it will turn into Kempsville Rd.

Hey cdog. A more direct route from 64 would be to take Indian River Rd Exit 286B. After about 1/2 mile turn right on Centerville Turnpike and proceed to casting field, maybe 6.5 - 7 miles down the road. Never been casting there, just know the area from playing softball.

If you come the 664 route it's a lot easier to come south on the 168 bypass like you're going to the Outer Banks. When you get to the Hanbury rd. overpass (which is the next one just past the Mount Pleasent rd. turn off) take the second turn towards the East. You'll go through a light and the road will turn into Etheridge Manor Blvd. Go to the end of this road and it will stop on Centerville. Look to your right just before you make it to Centerville and that's your field.

What are you throwing?

I will try to make it out.

I have two seven ft. rods, one with a heavier spinning reel.

Have 14lb on each.

Do you throw lead weights for practice?

If so, what size do I need to bring? Or something else?

Thanks!

Bob

better directions then mine jay. yeah, what he said. bring what ever you want. if you throw a 7 ft pole with a 6 oz weight, do it. the thing is you can practice your distance and measure it using what you always use. dif people have diferent techniques and you can learn from everyone. any one who is interested in tourny casting can get some pointers also. and see what the big buck rods and reels look like and how they perform. heck you may even get interested in the sport of long casting! see ya all tomorrow.

I probably won't be there today because of an invite to go dunk Eels for Bubba right after work but please keep posting the days & times you all plan to get together in the future. No problem on the directions, it's my way home everyday.

Frank,
Is this a seasonal spot for you guys? I assume this is a farm field and they don't have any winter crops. The reason I'm asking is I'd like to get out there but unfortunately I don't get out of work until after dark these days. Do you practice in the same spot during the spring when we start to get more daylight?
Thanks and looking forward to joining you all out there.

Just wondering if you all will be getting together next Wednesday to practice distance casting? If so, I plan to try and make it out.
