Casting arm is somewhat of a problem with me but not the main one. For me it used to be mainly my back. Being retired I can get to a gym more easily. And since summertime is the time when I pretty much do no fishing, I'm in the gym usually 3 days a week. This back routine given me by physical therapy has reduced back fatigue and improved endurance greatly. Its really a series of 9 well known exercises featuring stretches and some strength building. Then I do an overall body program of weight bearing exercises. That's mainly it and it has helped to keep the aches and pains to a minimum. I plan to get into yoga but haven't done much so far.
