    Great photo with the chromer too. It's nice to see someone who could always cast and fish.

    He might be able to cast a singlehander that far. But when he fishes for big fish he uses a Spey rod. What's up with that??

    Must be a special line, unless he can cast backing too.

    He casts backing. I've seen him do it.

    Like most steelheaders, Rajeff has adopted Spey casting for steelhead because it is more efficient; plus it's cool, and he can Spey cast a very long line as well.

    TThat record was set in the seventies. With glass, I'm assuming. The more I ponder it, the more it blows my mind.

    The Steve cast is pretty crazy to watch. His casts get a LOT of elevation.

    What the hell? Is there some old man rule that says if you are a single hand casting champion you can't fish with a two hander?

    I watched him at Rockport do some demostration casting with both the single and two hander. Awesome to watch.

    Because of this thread I looked up some of his videos. He can lay it out there. He uses his whole body to cast. I always wondered where they got the logo for echo. Now I know.
