Fly Fishing Lessons

Private Casting Lessons

If you want to catch more fish then then good casting skills will certainly improve your chances of bagging your target species. Accurate casting also leads to less time untangling you line from trees, increasing in the amount of water you can fish and reduces the risk of repetitive stress injuries caused by bad technique.

One on one casting instruction is by far the best way to become a competent fly caster. You’ll progressively gain the skills you need to bag fish in practically any conditions. Courses can be individualised to suit your requirements. Our instructors offer detailed tuition for novices and stroke correction for experienced casters to help you fine tune your technique.
