Single-Handed Casting Distance Record Crushed

By Kirk Deeter

While we are on the topic of amazing accomplishments, I thought I'd pass this little bonus bulletin along...

Steve Rajeff of G. Loomis just broke the single hand fly cast distance record today at the American Casting Association's Nationals event in Toronto.

The cast went 243 feet, which broke Steve's own 236-foot record that has stood for 20 years.

Let me put that in perspective for all my Wolverine, and Buckeye, and Bulldog, and Tiger, and Longhorn, and (okay), even Irish friends who spend too much time watching college football like myself.

Mr. Rajeff punted from his own goal line... and stuck it inside the other team's 20-yard line.

With a fly rod. Good grief.

Well what was he using a 20 foot ultralight g loomis rod? Kinda like the guys that call ducks in a competition, no real practical use for it but i guess its kinda cool. I'd like to see a video of this though, that might impress me then. He probably didn't have leader on the fly line or a fly for that matter to get tangled up. I guess there's fly casters and then there's fly fishers, and everywhere in between. Thanks for the news anyway deet.

Wow! That Rajeff guy can cast.

Any specs on the rod? I doubt it was a 7ft 4wt.

Double hual?

I casted 90 feet once and thought it was pretty good. I ran out of fly line. 243 feet! Incredible.

BTW, Buckeyes don't punt. We play field position.

You fumble, Buckhunter. At least you did in the Cooper years (the golden age).

I have no clue yet on the setup, but will track that down.

And Johnny, you're right... there's casting, and then there's fishing (Rajeff is probably the best I've seen do either). In any case... that's an awfully sick punch of a line off a fly rod. Seriously, the sheer physics of it all... I'm giddy if I see my backing knot once a year, just playing around.

I'd like to see the specs of the competition, rules etc, and then see the rod that he was using. I've done some recent reading and found the common cents(google search) method of rod evaluation to show the real specs of any fly rod. If it was a 5 wt comp, I bet that rod has a 2 or 3 wt tip with the butt end of an 8 wt and it specs out to be a true 7 wt or something like that. Even at that, I'm jealous. I'd love to be able to hit 120 consistently single handed. Is there a results page for this? To compare what he did to what the other competitors did.

Or he could have used a 14 foot spey and a shooting head/ running line. I have used a setup like that and 150+ feet casts (Shooting) are normal.

And your point being? So let me ask you this: What benefit is there to a cast that long? I know a boy and his toys, how fast can you go, how high can you jump. Don't get me wrong I think this is an incredible cast, but I am more impressed by the accuracy casting than distance. OK now you can all put minus's next to my post.

I don't understand you guys trying to completely disassemble this. Deeter's post was solely talking about how far he cast. Who cares what he was using, it was 243 feet! That is wicked far regareless of what he was using. I'd like to see what the records are for baitcasting and spincasting setups.

Distance casting was very popular way back when and is kept alive today by the manufacturers whom use it to showcase equipment and technology.

When I was a young'n I would stand in the backyard and see how far I could cast. Of course my equipment limited me but even so, laying out 243 feet of fly line is like landing on the moon. Incredible.

Also, Props to G.Loomis. Great rods and superb customer service.

since the article mentions single handed distance the rod is no more than 9'9" long. Here are the tackle rules from the ACA rulebook:
B) Fly Distance, Singlehanded
i) Rod - The complete rod shall not exceed nine feet and nine inches (9'9") in length.
ii) Reel - Unrestricted, except reel must be attached to the rod and must be capable of holding the
entire line.
iii) Line
a) For Men, Senior Men, and Intermediate boys, the shooting head shall not be less than fortynine
feet three inches (49'3") in length and shall not weigh more than six hundred fifty (650)
grains.
b) For Women, Senior Women, and Intermediate girls, the shooting head shall not be less than
forty-four feet four inches (44'4") in length and shall not weigh more than five hundred twenty
four (524) grains.
c) Running line - Unrestricted.
iv) Leader - Shall consist of a single leader of natural or artificial gut or gut substitute and not longer
than twelve (12) feet nor shorter than six (6) feet in length.
v) Fly
a) Description - Official distance fly adopted by the Association. The hackle shall not be smaller
than five-eighths (5/8) inch in diameter.

The rules make it even more impressive.

@ alex
WOW thats really amazing!
i'm really impressed how much you have accomplished every major milestone in fly fishing... without fail you seam to have already "done it" no matter the topic

yes i have 2 handed rods
and the 2hander means nothing about "line control"
rather... loading and forming larger D-loops

i thought you said 150+ was "normal" for you????
switch surf casting is not "spey" casting... its 2handed overhead
whats your 550g setup? skagit? with you 14ftr?
so what, a 56ft head...max? with a 15ft tip? 71ft total?
so your shooting 75+ consistently?
please show us we'd all love some pointers

stop trying to be a "know it all" and "one-upper" you just look less knowledgeable/creditable with every post

chill out

He’s also casting a fly on a leader? Just amazing. Takes technique and discipline. With all the right equipment and all the right conditions I still don't have the casting form and refined technique to even come close.

Years ago Bill Cairns gave us a casting demonstration at an Orvis class in Manchester. His distance was jaw-dropping - left and right handed. I still shake my head whenever I see the picture of him casting that beautifully looped line in the Orvis stores/catalogs. Humbling. I need more coaching.

Now, quit bashing me for what I said, I never said that wasn't an accomplishment to cast over 200 feet, but I am saying I have seen it done, just with a different meathod, and a 2 handed rod has more line control than a single, Deeter, want to back that up?
Now, I don't say I have reached every milestone known to flyfishing, never would, so quit acting like it, and 150 foot casts with spey are normal around me, these are big rivers dude.

Now, Cool it and lets both agree to disagree, ok?

A lot of the comments here remind me of something a wise friend once told me..."Some people think they can make their own candle burn brighter by blowing out the candle of others". 243 feet with a single handed rod is amazing. Would you rather be accurate than long? I'd bet any amount of money that Rajeff can cast more accurately than anyone on this board, he is versed in all aspects of the sport, and yes he can fish very well. Is a 243 foot cast practical? Of course not, but being able to sling it an insane distance in optimal conditions, means that you shouldn't have any trouble reaching fish busting at 80 feet in a stiff headwind. The longer you can accurately cast and present, the more fish you will reach and catch. It's a great feat by a great angler.
