Saturday April 21, 2018 - Distance Fly Casting

class_hassan_s_distance
This class is geared to the saltwater fly-fisherman, looking to increase the distance of their average cast.

Distance seminars will cover the essential elements of distance casting:
  • proper loading and unloading of the fly rod
  • forming tight loops
  • lengthening the casting stroke with drift and the double haul.

    Students should bring their own gear, 7-10 wt rod with a matching weight forward floating line is ideal (no sinking lines please).
    1:30pm to 4:30pm - Meet at shop 15 minutes prior.
