Remote Fly Casting Instruction

Remote Fly Casting Instruction

With today’s technologies, no longer does fly fishing education need to be face-to-face  The silver lining of COVID 19 is our increased rate of adopting video conferencing to interact. Sports Analysis applications that allow annotation and voice over are available via our mobile devices. No longer, do we need to be face-to-face to learn fly fishing!

Even though we are not in the same location, this instruction is still high-touch using video analysis and video conferencing. With that as a backdrop, I offer the following Remote Fly Fishing Instruction Opportunities.

Fly Casting Instruction for Clubs

The first task for any angler to master is fly casting. Data show that 80% of anglers do not pursue fly fishing because of their frustration with the cast.  It makes sense for clubs to create opportunities for members to become competent at their casting.

Price $200 for 1 to 20 anglers.

Online Casting – Back to the Basics  2 hours

Regardless of how many casts you have made, there is always more to learn and apply. This online class will be a mix of casting demonstrations, casting geometry, and drills for you to improve your casting skill. Yes, geometry – and physics.  Understanding “the why behind the how” of your cast allows you to diagnose and improve your cast.   Make sure you have your rod butt section, a pen with a cap, and a serrated dinner knife to join in.

Online Casting – Faults and Fixes Two Hours

When you cast, does your fly and line t land as you want it to? Elite casters have subtle moves they make for that perfect cast. In this online demonstration, you’ll learn the common faults of casting and learn drills that you can practice to fix these faults. Make sure you have your rod butt section, a pen with a cap, and a serrated dinner knife to join in.

Dry Fly Fishing Two Hours

You know the feeling – your line & fly land in unison with the current, and you get that perfect drift to a rising fish. Can you control whether your fly or line lands first?  Is this luck or skill for you?  If it’s luck,  then join in on this online demonstration, and you will learn how vital trajectory and presentation casts are.   With this knowledge, you’ll increase the number of perfect drifts, next time you are on the water.
