Live Virtual Fly Casting Instruction for Clubs

The first skill 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.

These classes are live virtual events for your club members. In the Casting Workshops, there is a 30-minute break for club members to socialize in smaller break-out groups.

The power of live remote casting instruction is here. The silver lining of COVID is many of us have embraced the use of video conferencing. I have taken that one step further, with a powerful wi-fi, I demonstrate casting real-time, allowing for Q&A time. Check out this snip-it with the Colorado Women Fly Fishers.
