Shadow Cast Competition

The 2011 Shadow Cast Competition
Do not miss out on this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity !

The rules:

  • You don´t have to be a great fly caster to make a great Shadow Cast. Just look at us…
  • Your Shadow Cast doesn´t have to be a practical fishing cast at all. Be creative – anything goes!
  • Keep it short and snappy.
  • Any kind of video will do.
  • The J&FF members will pick out the three best videos.
  • Head judge is none other than the grand Shadow Master and inventor of the original Shadow Cast, Jason Borger!
  • In addition to massive, global fly casting cred, the winner also gets Guideline Fario 8’6” #6 – THE ULTIMATE SHADOW CAST ROD. As said in GL’s catalog: ” Great for Spey casts and smooth open loop casting”
  • Deadline for the competition is October 1st, 2011
  • Extra points if you catch a fish with the Shadow Cast
