Basic Fly Casting

Calendar Next available session starts Apr 18, 2020 at 9 am

The goal of this course is to provide students with the casting skills necessary to fish effectively on your own. This is a “hands-on” course, so your time will be spent with a fly rod in hand, working on your own casting.  Most instruction will be done in small groups, but casting suggestions will also be offered on an individual basis. Videotape analysis of your casting stroke will be provided. Students are encouraged to use their own fly rod and reel, but the equipment will be available for anyone who needs it.  Please do not buy new equipment just to take this course.
