Red Owl -- your profile just indicates you live in the "northeast" If you are near LLBean's, take one of their casting classes over a weekend or even the shorter one and you will learn a lot. Or join TU and meet up with some members who can teach casting (many of us in Maine TU chapters took the Bean's instructor classes gratis so we can teach the TU Camp members or other new casters and keep up the interest in the sport; or take classes through a local fly shop.
And while everyone wants to cast long and far -- for most stream and river fishing, I think you will find that you catch most fish in the 25-40 foot range, so practice accruracy within that range in particular.
