, was he standing elevated above the water? How high?
Was the line Mr. Grant used a fishing line as well as a distance casting line?
Hi Speygillie,speyghillie said:Hi Bob,
Steven is right in what he says,Mr Grant only really wanted to show what his rod could do,and never meant to set any records, on some of his casts he cast the entire line length, and had no more line on the reel, it was never his intention to show what he could do, but what his rod could do, he was a very modest man, of slight build and 10st, was no 7ft giant and of huge build, with arms like tree trunks, that most people believe you need to be to cast greenheart.
The line was a fishing line, not a casting line, and one he used on the river when he was fishing.
