Longer Spinning Rod
Here I am starting the topic with the spinning rod. One of the most important thing for casting a spinning reel far is to choose a longer spinning rod. Your casting accuracy depends on the length of the fishing rod. Fishing rods are available in many shapes and sizes. The perfect size for farther casting is coming between 7 to 7.5 ft. This little gap makes a huge difference in fishing. Though longer fishing rod helps us in farther casting, there is a disadvantage too. In a smaller area full of trees and other things is going to create difficulties for a longer fishing rod. So for all kinds of places, you should prefer the 7ft fishing rod which is average.
The line is another most important thing for casting spinning reel far. In a longer casting, line’s size and the material does matter. A lighter line can fly longer distance than the heavier line does. The material also an important fact for choosing a line. A line made with good material is stronger than the line which is made with poor material. The mistake that beginners do is that they spool line too much or too less. These differences make some difficulties in fishing. So you need to spool enough line in your reel and most of today’s spinning reels has the exact amount of line. If you follow all things about line then your fishing will be going too easy and you can cast your spinning reel in long distance.
Lures are another important material for fishing. If you do not choose the correct lure then your fishing will be going to little uneasy. If you want to cast farther you should choose a heavier lure because it flies long distance than the lighter lure does.
With heavier lure, your aim will be pointed correctly. You can carry a different type of lures with some different weight. That will help you to cast in various distances.
Wind’s Direction and Casting Techniques

Before the casting of your reel, you should be aware of the wind’s direction. Always keep the fact in your mind that you should not cast your reel directly against the wind. Always try to cast the reel in the same direction as the wind. It is effective for you. If you cast your reel with wind’s direction then the wind will carry your spinning reel and help you to cast farther.
There are many techniques for casting a reel, like the side-arm cast, flip cast, skip cast. It will make casting easier for beginners. The side-arm cast is helpful in a windy condition. The first thing you need to do for the side-arm cast, hold the rod front of you in horizontal order to the ground and do a backswing and throw it on the forward and release the line just before the rod hits the target and stop. Then slow down your casting speed and throw it to the target area. It is easy to do and it is effective. With this technique, you can cast your reel as your wish in a windy atmosphere or in every situation.
