Flycasting Class for Intermediate Flycasters

Flycasting Class for Intermediate Flycasters

Instruction by:  Jim Tilmant, FFF Certified Casting Instructor

This 2 hour class is designed to extend the skills of flyfishers who have a handle on the basics, but want to take their flycasting to a new level.

Focus will be on increasing loop control, increasing distance, overcoming wind problems, and improving ability to get good drifts with your fly.  Students will learn how to improve their overhead casts, shoot line effectively, and will be introduced to hauling for more line speed and distance.  Specialty casts and aerial mends, to avoid fly drag and help adjust to various casting and stream conditions, will be discussed and practiced.    (This class will be on grass and will not involve time on the water) 

Skill Level:     Ability to make simple straight line casts of up to 40 ft, ability to repeatedly false cast 30 or more feet of line while maintaining control.
