Two Fly-Casting Clinics

Designed to make you a better fly-fisher and give you a more enjoyable time on the water

One Clinic on Fly Casting Essentials,  Saturday, August 5, 2017
One Clinic on Intermediate / Advanced Fly Casting,  Saturday, August 19, 2017

Clinic One, Fly Casting Essentials

Learn the difference between substance, what causes a good cast to be executed, and style, the individual's method of getting there. Be able to understand and execute the five components of every perfect cast? Common casting errors will be explained and demonstrated. Your cast will be analyzed and corrected by a Master Certified Instructor. You will learn how to quickly load the rod, loop control, shooting line, accuracy, distance, roll casts, and line control. Demonstrations will be short and concise; most of your time will be spent casting. This course is a prerequisite to the Advanced/Intermediate Casting Clinic held 2 weeks later. Understanding and learning these Essentials will allow you to get the most from our second session.

 Clinic Two, Intermediate/Advanced Fly Casting

This clinic will build upon and expand knowledge gained from the first program. You should practice, improve and refine your cast so that more advanced casting will be easily learned. The same instructors will help you learn how to increase distance and accuracy, minimize false casting, double haul, handle weighted lines and flies, cast well in all wind conditions, perform different slack line casts to control drag and prepare you so your saltwater experience is successful. You will now have the tools and knowledge to greatly improve your catch rate and also eliminate wrist, elbow and shoulder injuries due to poor casting execution.
