Fly Casting Clinic

Maine Fly Casting Clinic

This Basic Fly Casting clinic is designed to provide students with enough skills to allow them to fish effectively on their own.  I begin each session by showing people how to assemble their fly tackle, then demonstrate the elements of a four-point cast.  This is a hands-on clinic, however, so most of your time will be spent with a fly rod in hand, working on your own fly casting.

Maine Fly Casting Instruction

Most instruction is done in small groups, but many individual casting improvement suggestions will also be offered. Videotape analysis of your casting stroke will be provided and proper loop control will be emphasized throughout the session.

Students are encouraged to use their own fly rod and reel at the casting clinic.  But you should not purchase new equipment just to attend.  If you indicate on the registration form that you want to borrow equipment, I will gladly provide a fly rod and reel for you to use.  I offer this clinic as a full-day session that runs from 9am-4pm. The date of my next fly casting clinic is Saturday April 21, 2018.

“I struggled with fly casting for years. I should have taken your course long ago .”

“I thought I would be self-conscious about having all of my casting mistakes recorded on videotape. But that turned out to be the most beneficial part of the course.”
