Distance-Casters' Lament: "No Groupies"

July 7, 2005 By: Marshall Cutchin

This revealing profile of competition caster Mike Bostwick gives us a look at what it takes to be among the best. “Bostwick warms up with some straight casts — the foul shot of the sport — with about three or four hundred throws to start. Next he works on curve-line casts. Then it’s on to double hauls and slack lines and reach casts. By the time he’s done for the day, he’s put in another three or four hours of practice (more on weekends) and has another thousand or so casts under his belt.” Eric Dexheimer on Denver, Colorado’s Westword.com.
