Casting Instruction rate is $125.00 per hour
I have many clients throughout the year that schedule a fly casting instruction lesson to improve their time on the water. Fly casting instruction is the quickest way to learn the foundation of what to practice. Learning to control various line positions for the drift to have a chance is essential for progressing as an angler. I have spent a lifetime casting and continue to still remain on the journey of deepening my understanding of what is possible when casting a fly line. The anticipation of casting to rising fish is absolutely exhilarating to watch the fish appear and eat your fly! Your presentation on the stream is lifted to a whole new level with a fly casting instruction lesson. I guarantee your entire casting lesson or it is free of charge. That is how confident I am in conveying this information to you!

I can assure you that once you can cast accurately and efficiently that you will have a direct increase for your time spent on the stream. Most mistakes can be ironed out in short order with fly casting instruction. I realize many will skip practicing their own casting which is evident by what we see on the stream here and everywhere in travels. I have often wondered why folks travel great distances to exotic destinations when their casting leaves much to be desired? That is by far the most constant complaint of guides
That is by far the most constant complaint of guides worldwide! It is actually quite simple in that if you desire to fly fish for any species of fish you must be able to get your fly close to the fish which will require accuracy. False casting to and from is inefficient and a waste of your fishing time. The better you learn to control your fly line the less need there is for all of the line flinging.
The important aspect for a few hour lesson is that it will save you decades of time by practicing what you did not need. I am a firm believer that a very large part of learning for people stems from an increase with their curiosity about line control and what is possible with that control. The physical skill of perfecting certain line control on the grass will happen consistently once they can see it, understand it, and lastly know it is attainable.
