Description

This Casting 101 class is open to all and geared towards someone who has minimal to no experience casting a fly rod or someone who has some experience but wants to tighten their loops or become proficient at the roll cast. No equipment necessary. Please email info@unitedwomenonthefly.com if you need a rod/reel set-up. Come early to set-up your rod/reel.

The core of fly fishing is fly casting. 75% of fishing is the presentation. In order to present the fly properly an angler must have an understanding of The Principles of Fly Casting. To become a successful fly caster you must apply the Three “P”s; Practice, Patience and Persistence.
