Sheila is a Federation of Fly Fishers Master Casting Instructor (one of less than 200 in the world) and teaches fly-casting throughout New England. She is the chief instructor / program director at the Wulff School of Fly Fishing in the Catskills, and a member of the TFO Rods , R.L. Winston Rods and Hatch Reels Pro Staff.
She has traveled extensively catching (and releasing) everything from bluegill to blue marlin, and she holds an IGFA Women's Fly-Rod World Record for both Bonefish, and Bluefish. Sheila performed a number of the fly-casting sequences in George Roberts's book, Master the Cast: Fly Casting in Seven Lessons. She has published her own book,
Fly Casting : A Systematic Approach. Her second book, "Starting in the Salt: Saltwater FlyCasting" is now available.
When she is not casting or fly-fishing, she works as a Nurse Practitioner in Boston. She teaches because she loves to share this sport with others.
Congratulations to Sheila for winning woman's distance casting competition at ICAST 2016. Two
years in a row now!
Capt. Bill Hassan
