So I had the opportunity to spend a few hours with Tommy Farmer a couple of weeks ago. I was interested in learning to cast farther. Like a lot of people I see on the beach I thought that I cast about 300 feet. Just ask anyone you see fishing in Virginia Beach and they will tell you that they can cast 8 and bait about 100 yards. Since I threw about the same distance that they did I thought I was in the ballpark. I was wrong. My first cast with Tommy went 222 feet measured by Tommyís laser. Wow what a letdown, more on that later.

Tommy is a great guy. I liked him as soon as I met him. Even with all of his accomplishments he is still humble. He wasnít there to tell me how great he was, but rather to help me reach my goals. Since I didnít know what I was capable of, my goals were unclear even to me. I asked him to start out with the basics. After some instruction on the mechanics we started casting first with my spinning gear. Before I knew it I was throwing farther than I ever have.

Then I started working with Tommyís casting reel. I had never in my life thrown a conventional reel before so I had some minor blow ups but I started to get the hang of it. Tommy kept asking if I had any questions, but he explained things so well that I couldnít think of any. I just did what he told me to do and I came just 14 feet of doubling my distance. My last cast was 429 feet. I will tell you that such an improvement was more than I had hoped for. I might have gone farther but Iím old and was getting tired.

The bottom line is. If you want to improve your casting and be able to put it where the fish are then go take a lesson with Tommy Farmer. You wonít regret it.

North Carolina surf fishing Cape Hatteras
shim "Surf fishing Fort Fisher and Carolina Beach are my favorite local fishing spots. And during the spring and fall I love surf fishing Cape Hatteras for Red Drum and Striper. Fighting and landing a big Red Drum from the surf is very exciting, and challenging. Surf Fishing led me to long distance casting. In turn, this sparked my interest in competitive distance casting."
