she's to be respected, no doubt.but I find it ironic that they used her high school boyfriends music to accompany the otherwise enjoyable video montage of her mad skills.

How the fuck do you reach cast? I see her doing it effortlessly. I suck at it. If this sounds like a cry for help, it is.

The question should be is she a great caster. (YES). "The greatest" is superlative and only one person fits that description. I like Joan. She is cool. Shutupandfish. The easiest way to reach cast is to make your cast and as the line finishes its travel you make your reach while letting out an additional few feet of line. That way the extra line for the reach comes from the uncast line and it does not effect the cast line. Does this help?n jed

SUAF,Best way to solve the reach cast issue. Wade to another position where you don't have to use it. I know that it can't always be done under every circumstance but most times it's doable.
