Thanks for the video. I know he said he doesn't work for break away...but by the looks of the jeans hangin' on the line...is he sponsored by Levis or Wrangler?? :icon_scratch:

Good stuff.

I've watched this vid at least 3x before it was posted here. Good info. Those sinkers are $$$, but I'm going to try a couple this summer.

EDIT: isn't mono better for a shock leader: cheaper, and it stretches during the high intensity cast?

For pure casting distance braid is almost always better. For fishability I believe a mono shock leader is better.

Anyone doing a Pendulum (sp) on a crowded beach is a JackA$$. I'm a distance caster, and I have seen people have breakoff's and it aint pretty. 100yards is easly acieved without doing a swinging cast, no need to kill anyone in the process.

Yep, there is really no need to use a pendulum cast if you are only wanting to throw 100 yds. A simple off the ground cast can easily outdo 100 yds.

Im sure 300 is more than enough most of the time.. However sometime 300-600ft will get you in fish that others cant dream of reaching. I have friends who can place a bait 550ft EASY, and they also happen to out fish most people.. Even still none of them do a swing cast

At one time a many moons ago - I think a certain Atlantic Angler Big Chief site administrator was trying to get a seminar pow wow or get together with Tommy Farmer on AI in conjunction with one of the totally unplanned gatherings we used to have. I for one would be prepared with the proper amount of "supplies" should we be able to pull off an unplanned gathering of this magnitude. Casting distance is always something we all think about and want to improve on.Having some guidance from a tourney winner certainly wouldn't hurt.

tommy does seminars :)

he likes to keep them small so he can give more 'one on one' instruction ..

if you have access to an open field , get in touch with him .

ai would probably be out of the question . you need to have permits and there isn't enough 'open' space ..

I was there for that last tournament that was posted. Good times. Distances over 700' are becoming more and more common because we have a great wealth of people who don't mind sharing information and the people trying to learn are not afraid to listen and practice.
