Intro to Casting for Ladies
Thu, May 25, 2017, 6:00 PM – 7:30 PM MDT
This hands on class is targeting ladies who have or have not fly fished. Learn how or sharpen your skill to be a proficient caster and increase your fishing success. In this 1 1/2 hour class, you will learn basic casting technique. Jimmy Gabettas and Barb Miller will help one-on-one, which is why we are keeping classes smaller.
We will talk about and practice each step of casting...and then put it together;
*Holding the rod & arm/wrist positioning
*What is loading your rod? It's not a gun!?
*Starting your backcast..holding the line.
*Forward & false cast
*SETTING THE HOOK
This is a good time to get familiar with your gear, however if you don't have a rod and reel, let me know and we will provide one (no additional cost). Jimmy's All Season Angler has extended a one-time 15% off the purchase of any gear to get you on the river when you present the ReelVibes coupon, or mention this coupon.
The cost of this event is $10. Again, if you'd like to be put in a raffle, bring 2 non-perishable items for fishy swag. This items will be donated to the Idaho Falls Soup Kitchen. #supportlocal #nohungrychild
Social hour will follow the workshop at the Tap-n-Fill in Snake River Landing. Have your partner come meet us and get to know one another.
Jimmy Gabettas brings 40 years of fishing experience and has taught classes since opening the shop in 1984. I (Barb) have fly fished for 18 years, in those years I have learned that any opportunity to refine casting..I'm there. (this includes hubs comments in my ear entire floats ;) However, receiving coaching from someone else besides a spouse sometimes resonates differently. This class is to help build your technique confidence while networking with likeminded fishy babes. Cheers to clean rivers and tight lines!
