Learn to fly cast with a live video instructional lesson

Learn to fly cast with a live video instructional lesson is one of the methods that fellow fly casters may use to assist with their journey. This method of teaching during these high-tech times enables the client to use their iPad or smartphone for live footage with applications such as Facetime, Skype, or Facebook Messenger to name a few. It really is effective for folks that desire to pick up new casts for problem-solving on the stream. Great for all levels of casters from the beginning pick up and lay down casts to advanced casts used in fly fishing.

I began using Skype originally with casting clients around the globe for short lessons around four years ago. The results were much better than I expected early on because the video feed lets us make suggestions in an instant. It is practically the same as standing next to the caster for the lesson. The reason why it is effective for the fly caster is no doubt because of the instantaneous feedback. Most all of the visual methods fly casters use like Youtube, DVD’s, books, etc… have one universal flaw! The flaw lies in the fact that there is no direct feedback.

The beauty of using technology today is that opens up direct feedback on a global scale. The picture above illustrates just what is possible with direct feedback from only twenty minutes of instruction which used only word pictures and direct audio feedback. The fly caster above in pic was a total beginner and hit two out of three cast into a 2″ target cone and missed by 5″ on the third attempt at a 35′ target. The pic is from a fly casting modality study at Lee University which I took part in the results are published in the Loop magazine. I am not sure which one of us was most excited about this feat but it was quite a great teaching moment overall! The live video fly casting feed uses Paypal for payment and can be set up after swapping contacts for the preferred video feed.
