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.
