Steve Rajeff in "The New York Times"

Steve Rajeff won the National Casting Championship in fine style last week, firing a 225-foot cast across the Kentucky Bluegrass. The cast was 17 feet short of the national record he set last year, but hey, who’s counting. James Card profiles the casting master in yesterday’sThe New York Times.
