Surfcasting Cape Cod’s Great Beach | RISAA Presentation


Ryan Collins

On the night of February 27th 2017, I had the pleasure of presenting for the first time to the Rhode Island Saltwater Angler's Association

Around 200 RISAA faithful showed up to hear me present about Surfcasting Cape Cod's Great Beach.

I had an awesome time meeting many RISAA members, and I really enjoyed sharing this special presentation with the audience. I was also able to capture the entire presentation on video, which you can access below.


The information, photos and videos in this presentation are from a 27 mile hiking/surfcasting trip from Nauset Inlet in Eastham to Race Point Lighthouse in Provincetown, which I embarked upon during September of 2015.

About the author 

Ryan Collins

I'm fortunate to have grown up on the beach, and I've been fishing since kindergarten. I have great family, friends and fishing experiences to be thankful for. Just being out there is enough-catching fish is just a bonus!

  • Just watched surf casting Great Beach. Wow.
    Read like a book.
    Motivating on so many of the best & basic levels!
    Fishing can take you away from it all, but while there we may have the time to think what is really precious.
    God, family, tight lines.

  • Ryan,
    What a great presentation! I liked your combination of pictures and video. The background information you began with, about growing up fishing, set a very personal tone for your adventure. As always, you’re very well spoken with good pauses (and no “ummm”‘s). I would have loved to partake in a trip like this, as I’ve always described myself to be a “marathon” fisherman. Watching this video makes me realize what a great community of fisherman (“where catching fish is just a bonus”) you have brought together. I really hope that your presentation draws more RISSA members to participate with MFCC. I would love to make some contacts in RI to venture out and fish new waters. Fantastic!

    • Awesome comment Brian, thank you! I am happy to let you know we have several RISAA members who have already hopped onboard MFCC as members. RISAA is a fantastic group I encourage anyone reading this to attend one of their meetings.

      We have a lot to look forward to during 2017. In particular I am excited about presenting at the MV Surfcaster’s Association on April 4th. I will see you there buddy!
