    Great photo with the chromer too. It's nice to see someone who could always cast and fish.

    He might be able to cast a singlehander that far. But when he fishes for big fish he uses a Spey rod. What's up with that??

    Must be a special line, unless he can cast backing too.

    Like most steelheaders, Rajeff has adopted Spey casting for steelhead because it is more efficient; plus it's cool, and he can Spey cast a very long line as well.

    TThat record was set in the seventies. With glass, I'm assuming. The more I ponder it, the more it blows my mind.

    The Steve cast is pretty crazy to watch. His casts get a LOT of elevation.

    What the hell? Is there some old man rule that says if you are a single hand casting champion you can't fish with a two hander?

    I watched him at Rockport do some demostration casting with both the single and two hander. Awesome to watch.
