Learning to cast should be the first priority for the beginning flyfisher. The ability to cast with confidence makes
everything else about fly fishing much easier to learn.
The beginner will learn the basics: casting, knots, selecting and balancing
tackle, plus drills for self-improvement. By the end of the class the first-time student is able to cast and present the fly accurately
at a minimum distance of 40-50 feet.
The experienced angler will learn to achieve pin-point accuracy, tighter loops, greater
distance and a delicate presentation of the fly under a variety of conditions.
My unique Accelerated Learning Method is easier
to learn and produces lasting results. The "secrets" that enabled me to win national accuracy and distance fly casting championships
can be learned by anyone.
Classes are small, so that each student, beginner or seasoned angler, will get my personal attention
(no assistant instructors.)
Join me at one of my schools and gain more fly fishing success and enjoyment in the years ahead.
