Casting Tuition


This course is designed with the beginner in mind and is a must for anyone starting out in the sport.

Many people comment that it is best to complete this course before purchasing any equipment. This way they can determine if they like fly fishing before outlaying money on gear. It also gives them an insight into what type of gear is best suited for the fishing they wish to pursue. Contrary to common belief, you don’t have to spend a fortune to purchase good quality fly gear that will perform well and give you many years of enjoyable fishing.

The course is divided into two parts. You can choose to do one or both parts on the same day:

PART 1 – (8am to 12pm) Contains all you need to know to get started. You’ll be shown what to look for when purchasing rods and reels to suit the particular type of fishing you intend to do, the different types of fly lines and their applications, maintenance of your equipment, how to set up the gear and the knots to use as well as coaching on the basics of casting.

The lunch break 12 – 1 provides an opportunity to discuss the different fly patterns and selection for the species you are targeting.

PART 2 – (1pm to 4pm) During the on-water session, you’ll learn the basic fishing skills such as the various retrieve methods, techniques for handling loose line, setting the hook and playing the fish as well as learning how to overcome the problems caused by wind and current, roll casting, increasing distance and much more.

These are not bulk courses. Numbers are strictly limited to a maximum of 5 to ensure plenty of personal hands-on tuition.
