Surfcasting is a sport on the Rhode Island shore. It combines some art, science, ability, learning, and a lot of fun. It is more than casting a line out and reeling it back in.

One needs to know what they are fishing for and what tackle will catch. Tackle or gear becomes a topic unto itself. The right pole, the right test of line, the right reel, and of course, the right lure or bait.

There is technique involved. The method of casting and putting the line where the fish are is different from the shore than from a boat. This means practice and skill.

But this is an "everyman" sport. Once one purchases the equipment, they own it. The beach is free (for the most part). Fishing gives access in Rhode Island (a clause in our constitution). At the end of the day (or evening), one has been in the open salty air and is going home with a meal. That's a great time.
