Are lure fishermen better casters ?

been thinking about lure fishing and its effect on my general casting. I lure fish a lot and I prefer to be mobile and cast a lot even if I am in a boat ( most times) I will stop drift or moor up and cast at likely looking structures that I can either see or find on the echo sounder.

A mate of mine also does a lot of lure fishing but he prefers to troll,

now ( and here is the link to carp fishing), if find that as I lure fish so much my casting is really accurate and my casting for carp is also ( at short to medium ranges) accurate. Not trying to boast but up to 60-70 yards I can normally get to with in 1-2 ft and sometimes closer not casting on the clip.

Over that distance, well … I am as accurate as the next man

Do other carp anglers who also lure fish also see the same increases in accuracy ?


New reels… who says getting older is a drag

thanks to my lovely wife, I now have a brand new set of Fox Stratos FS 12000e’s to play with.. not my birthday yet but wow are they smooth. Going to go to the tackle shop tomorrow to get line put on ( they can take 450M each) as I cant be bothered to wind in 1.5 km of line.

I love birthdays for once you get to just receive presents rather then have to also buy them.
