Why Improve Your Fly Casting?

The fly cast is the only delivery between you and the fish you pursue. It becomes much easier overall if you can cast accurately with efficient fly casting strokes. Since the line and rod are only tools for assisting you with this tasks it is really all about you the fly caster to increase your abilities.

I can assure you that once you can cast accurately and efficiently that you will have a direct increase in 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 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 internationally.

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 fly line slinging.

Understanding your Intent Fly Casting

The important aspect of 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 in 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.

Having an intent is everything when making fishing casts for whatever technique you are using on the stream. The layout for attaining a “dead drift” on the water is one of the grails of the sport. Learn single hand, Skagit, and double handed fly casting for a deeper enrichment of your fishing time on the water!

I am a Master Certified Instructor through the Fly Fishers International. I can diagnose and correct faults for instant improvement for your time spent on the water.  We teach and train casting instructors in addition to the general public. Check out the Bio Mac Brown page for more info.
