A couple of weeks ago Steve Rajeff smashed the distance record for fly casting with a 243 foot cast in Toronto. Now obviously, throwing lures with some serious weight and a stiff spinning/baitcasting/surfcasting rod almost anybody could beat that distance, but the video above seems ludicrous. I have no idea what a country mile is, but if you do the maths this guy's cast is 540 feet. Something tells me this is nonsense.

Can't see a problem myself, I often cast a para fly that far on a #4 WF. _________________ "Surely luck was with me today, Sir,
