Invest in yourself to become a better fly caster, therefore becoming a better angler. This Gender-Inclusive Level One Casting Clinic is open to all and geared towards the fly caster that has never picked up a fly rod or has some experience. We will meet outside for 2 weeks to build a solid fly casting foundation.
COVID – 19 – We will follow all Washington State Covid-19 Guidelines. Fly Casting Classes will be outside.
The class will be taught in drills. This will allow the caster to breakdown each drill and bring practice ideas home. Each drill is directly related to a fishing situation. No equipment necessary.
Remember basketball players don’t get good at free throws without practicing for hours shooting free throws.
