Private Casting Lessons

Casting a fly rod well leads to an enhanced enjoyment of fly fishing.  The sensation of tapered line bending the long rod and sight of a narrow loop rolling off the tip appears somewhat magical.  Beyond the magic, delivering consistent, accurate and efficient casts requires the fly fisher to develop solid casting mechanics.  This 1.5 hour course serves as an introduction towards understanding and executing the necessary steps involved in making beautiful, controlled straight line and roll casts.   Equipment provided.  Ages 10 and Up.  Please contact us for pricing and availability.
