Stand on the goal line of your favourite local football pitch. Then imagine another two of them added end to end and that is around the distance that Jamie Blakeman hit with his cast at the recent North East Surfcasting Association event.
Jamie used a Zipplex 427SU rod to launch his 150gm lead the massive distance of 281.75 meters, 308 yards, using an off the ground cast rather than the more common pendulum style for distance casting. According to the UK Surfcasting Federation website, Jamie’s amazing cast is new world record and is the furthest official distance in any weight class.
Well done Jamie on a tremendous casting achievement, looking forward to the first 300-metre cast next.
