Head down to the local middle school or high school and cast down the football field to get a good measure of distance.

distance is good , --- but accuracy is just as important . I learned by setting up old coffee cans at varying distances and trying to drop a Trigged Jelly worm using a 1/8 and 3/16oz weight in them from 30 feet , 50 feet , 70 feet etc..
It really helps when fishing weeds and exposed timber .

You are doing the right thing by practicing. Once you feel more comfortable, you can start releasing the tension knob a little bit and get further and further casts. When yu get good at it, you will be able to cast into the next drive way and measure your casts in Yards, like 40 or 50 or more yards. Glad you feel comfortable enough to ask for help. Hope this helps. Tight lines, keep safe and good luck.

Like playing golf, the older I get the less distance I get. True in a lot of things.

Pay attention to what the rod specs are, put line on 3/4 of line weight specs, tie on weight about 3/4 of rod weight spec. Don't practice with things that catch a lot of wind, such as that soda bottle you used awhile back and that float. Think about every cast. Which direction is the wind? Pick a spot to aim for , don't just cast aimlessly into an open area. After every cast, think about what happened. Did you notice the wind effect, what did you feel on your thumb? Did it go higher or lower trajectory than intended? Was tension knob set for lure weight? Were the brakes set intentionally for what you are throwing? Make small adjustments. You will get there.

It is like playing guitar, no one was born with it. There is NO substitute for time spent trying , observing, and adjusting. Every bad cast you make is a chance to learn what went wrong.

Good luck , have fun, catch fish


GOD is good!
