Default A must view for Surfcasters. . . . .

As a relatively new member to this site, I've thoroughly enjoyed thumbing through the various forums and increasing my knowledge of this great sport of striper fishing. I came across an instuctional video in an old thread of the "Distance Casting Forum" that's a must view. There seems to be an ever-growing number of new members here, many of whom are also new to the Surfcasting aspect of the sport. I would highly reccomend checking out this step-by-step instructional stop motion video by Neil Macellow as he demonstrates a couple long-distance casts. While it may not always be about casting as far as you can, anyone who's been Surfcasting in a considerable wind with high surfs knows the importance of getting your line beyond the breakers and keeping it free from mounds of seaweed. I tried it out for the first time this a.m. and believe me, it will add considerable distance over the basic "wing-it-behind-ur-head" cast that I was using. Just thought I'd pass it along...hope it helps someone as much as it did me.

P.S. If you read this thread Neil, you owe me an 18" mono leader & 4 oz. pyramid sinker that I launched clear across the Scarborough marsh......yeah I know, not meant for the marsh but I couldn't help but try.....c'mon, we've all been there!!!! 'Nyuk 'Nyuk 'Nyuk
