Think of yourself standing in the middle of flowing water, casting a fly to a feeding fish - and you have control. This class is designed to help you achieve that feeling. For the first half of the day, you improve casting skills through the use of video tape analysis. Reviewing video tapes of yourself greatly increases your knowledge of the casting stroke and focuses attention on particular problems you may have. This is a unique experience. The old adage "A picture is worth a thousand words" truly applies. In the afternoon you are in the water and fishing. Your instructor is wading by your side suggesting and demonstrating applicable casting techniques for the fishing situation at hand. You are coached on how to work streamers, nymphs, and dry flies, and on how to read water and recognize fish habitat.
The class includes:
Discussions and indoor demonstrations of the mechanics of fly casting, loop shape, and line control.
Casting on an open field while learning a series of exercises and casts used to improve line control and presentation while the camera is running.
Video tape review sessions of yourself casting. Pointers are given on different methods you can use to improve personal technique.
Streamside talks on reading water and presentations used to effectively fish structures such as ledges, rocks, split currents, eddies, and holes.
Hours of guided stream/river fishing with emphasis on application.
A morning coffee service and buffet lunch.
The fee for the Advanced Fly Fishing School is $200 per person. There is a maximum of 6 students per class.
