The position is import - using the clock analogy if 12 is where you want to cast, the lead is at 10 the rod should be around 8. The rod needs to be brought round in a complete arc and not stopped premturely and brought over the shoulder. The movement/transfer of weight on the feet coupled with a final punch near the end gets maximum distance.
A bit like a golf swing you need someone to tell you what you are doing wrong
Thankfully I fish the rough stuff most of the time and don't need to get more than 80yrds

You have made my hands start itching with all this talk of casting.

It depends what your after, and which bit of the beach your fishing.
IE. You`d be mad to after conger with a long cast from the `Dragons teeth`, or Chesil cove.
However, on some days mackeral seem to be out of everyones reach, except one guy. He seems to pull a string in, with every cast?
If you`re after bass, try fluffing a cast, then leave it. They`re most probably within spitting distance?

You can often see Bass quite close in on the groynes at bournemouth. In fact they swim around peoples legs when their paddling in the summer.
