Abstract

Video analysis techniques have been used to analyse quantitatively the overhead casting method employed by sea anglers fishing from beaches. The techniques have been used to estimate launch velocities and launch angles achieved by this casting method. Cast distances achieved have been compared with results of projectile calculations, using observed launch angles and velocities. The measured cast distances have been found to be between two and three times shorter than predicted by basic projectile calculations. Further experiments indicate the drag of the running line to be the main cause of the reduction in cast distance.
