Requirements for casting:

High visibility mono only in the following minimum diameters:
100gm - .26mm

Safety rules:

The use of a high visibility mono shockleader is required with a minimum level diameter of .75mm for all weight categories (no tapered leaders permitted).

The minimum length for the shocker is whatever length allows a minimum of eight wraps of shocker on the spool of the reel when the cast is made.

Only clips supplied by Sportcast USA may be used to attach the weight to your shockleader.

Tournament weights will be supplied by Sportcast USA.

Thanks,

If you have a chance to go this is a don't miss

Watching these guys throw a lead absolutely SICK distances is, to say the least, incredible !!

I'll be going to check out the Marlton one (and LL Bean is right around the corner for you fly fishermen)

Trust me, this isn't the place you want to go cast

I thought the same thing that you did. I stopped in there on Friday, practice day - I brought the 12' Breakaway and Mag Elite figuring I'd have a go, maybe get some pointers.
Started taking the rod out of the truck. Saw Tommy Farmer take a practice throw and surreptitiously slipped the rod back into the truck. HOLY CHIT!!!
After that there was no way was I going to let these guys see me cast (And I don't completely suck at it)

Ended up hanging out for a few hours talking casting - learned a ton !

The forecast winds for tomorrow are just insane; we here in the states rarely get the strong steady over 20mph winds that the Brits are often blessed with.

There should be some big numbers marked.

If it's too windy to fish come on over; everyone is welcome to cast or just watch a round or two . . .

-------

Note a schedule change: The June 13-14 tournament is now being held in Lewes, Delaware. More info to follow.

Casting starts around 9 both days (maybe earlier on Sunday if the field can be left down) and on Sunday ends early afternoon because a lot of guys have a far drive.

Be sure to introduce yourself, I'll be the big Grizzly Adams looking guy throwing a spinner . . .

See ya Sunday
