The Long Cast: Winning By Inches

Jim Gunderson threw a 5-weight fly line 120 feet, nine inches to beat second-place finisher Steve Rajeff by seven inches at the “Best of the West” competition held on March 19 in Salt Lake City, Utah. “World champion caster Steve Rajeff was next and passed on a practice cast of 119 feet 10 inches, needing as many casts as possible to best Gunderson’s mark. Rajeff’s next two casts, 111 feet 0 inches and 118 feet 8 inches were also short of the winning distance.” On the International Sportsmen’s Exposition Web site.
