2016 FLY CASTING CLINICS AT CHARLIE’S FLY BOX
1-3 PM; meet at the shop
$50 per person—Limit 8 per Class (except for 7/16)
Come join us for these great clinics that will improve your fishing and casting! Sign up for one, some or all of them! The first clinic emphasizes skills critical for obtaining the most from your equipment and yourself! This is a great foundation for all types of fishing and for the rest of the clinics offered. In subsequent clinics these skills will be reviewed for new and repeat participants (so if you miss the first one foundation skills will still be covered!) but the majority of the time will be spent on the topic at hand. The instructor, Jonathan Walter, is an International Federation of Fly Fishers Master Certified Casting Instructor and has over 20 years of teaching and fishing experience. >>>>>>
5/14---ON THE MONEY---IMPROVING ACCURACY: Your fly choice won’t help if your cast isn’t accurate! Getting the fly to a target zone is not hard so let me help you achieve this! We will cover loop formation, estimating distance, cast trajectory and aiming. Stop hoping and start fishing! A great class for all levels.
