Is there any form of distance cast that can actually be used in real fishing situations? All the beaches in the Canturbury area steeply shelving and stoney meaning off the ground and pendulum casts arn’t that easy unless you’re standing back from the waves. I think any distance I could gain from doing a pendulum or off the ground cast I can get by just doing a normal overhead cast and waiting for a break in the waves to walk out further to cast. Also the old saying never turn your back to the sea can be important if the sea is rough and trying to do some sort of pendulum cast.
