Fly Casting for Beginners
No matter the type of fishing, the cast is one of the, if not the most crucial step in fishing, especially fly fishing. Casting a fly rod effectively is not the easiest thing to do “right out of the box”. Some anglers have different ways to approach the best way to learn how to cast a fly rod. Either DIY learning or independent research tends to be the most common way of learning. Some need a more hands on experience with an instructor or guide. My goal is to make the new fly fisher in the sport feel comfortable when attending my class and confident when leaving my class. My instructional fly casting classes will cover the general knowledge one will need to know when they attend their next fly fishing adventure either on their own or with a local guide.
