That being said, shooting line with any accuracy - indeded, shooting line at all - with a slingshot cast requires great skill and perfect timing and I sure can't do it.

Joe also uses a LONG rod in tight streams for dapping and bow and arrow casts rather than the SHORT rods that most folks use in tight quarters.

Look at how long the rod is on this video.
