Basic Fly Casting
with Kevin Tracewski
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 equipment will be available for anyone who needs it. Please do not buy new equipment just to take this course. This course is taught by Kevin Tracewski, a certified fly casting instructor and author of the best selling book, A Fisherman’s Guide to Maine.
