Leverage today’s technology of Zoom and VIdeo to improve your casting skills from the comfort of your home.

Investing in your fly casting skills is crucial to catching more fish and maximizing your time on the water. A good fly cast lets you accurately place your fly in various fishing situations, including tight areas, windy days, and complex currents. The size of your loop affects your accuracy, distance, and fly presentation, so it’s essential to learn how to cast both narrow and wide loops and understand when to use them. You will have the opportunity to leverage cutting-edge video software to maximize your skill-building.

This workshop is intended for anglers who wish to improve their casting skills and are willing to devote time to practice. It is not recommended for beginners, as it assumes prior on-the-water experience.
