It's interesting (and a bit disheartening) to find a field (or empty beach), and to measure out the distance you are actually getting!

True that long casts often go far beyond the inshore feeding area of most of the fish, most of the time.

But in Winter, when cod are out there in deep water, or when the mackerel are splashing around just out of casting range it's useful to be able to cast those extra yards.

But don't make a habit of casting to maximum achievable distance, just to where the fish are feeding is best :)

But then how do you fit in the practice for when long casts are needed?
