Beginner casting class


If you have a fly rod and would like to learn to cast, this is the meetup for you.  If you are a caster and want to work on better loops and line control this is for you.  If you are an experienced caster and want to help out or tweek some casts that would be great.


I can work with @8 beginners at a time.  So I will set the class for 8 and if you are intermediate or advanced you don't have to mark you are attending.  


You will want to bring your rod, reel, line, leader or 8ft piece of 10#mono, eye protection, and maybe some water.  

We will review the equipment, explain and demonstrated the fly cast and practice casting good loops.

If you have not cast much you may want to take the next week and do a little research on casting to get a head start.  Our sponsor the Federation of Fly Fishers (link on left) can get you started.  

Let's get out and do some casting and for those that want to use that as a jumping off point, you can go to Jones Bridge Park afterwards and fish if the water is nice.


See you soon,

Rene

    1-1 student teacher ratio and great progress by those starting out. They were able to make fishable casts by the end of the class. Way to go!

    Rene is a great teacher. In a short period of time (1-2 hour) I was learning how to cast with great form with controlled loops. I'm on a good path for a good fishing season.

      That would be great Lee. We can see how much of the 'verbage' you remember from the Roswell classes, and put you to work!

      No regrets Scott, show up anyway. This is for fun, there is no test, I just wanted it to be a reasonable amount of folks and it looks like it will be. I hope you can make it.

    I just read that we need our own poles. I'm so new to this sport I don't have one or know where to get one around here. Can you recommend a rental shop or maybe what kind I should buy as a starter kit? eBay? Used? I know I will use it for camping and practice. Help!

      Sujoy and Rene, thanks for the advice. Maybe I will take Sujoy up on his offer to use a spare then take notes at the clinic what and what not to buy. I live in Roswell so I want to shop local. See ya guys soon!

      No worries Nina, I'll bring my spare
