Private Casting Lessons
$75 / Hour
Taking a fly casting lesson is a lot like taking a golf lesson. It isn’t absolutely necessary, but it certainly can help get you on track allot faster than you eventually figuring things out on your own.
A one-hour private casting lesson is $75. For beginners, I usually spend 15-minutes or so on the assembly of tackle and a few basic knots. Then, we move on to the basic pick-up and delivery of line, along with false casting and shooting line. A two-hour lesson is the optimum length and costs $150. This includes an analysis of your casting stroke, and exposure to the roll cast and double haul. Experienced fly fishermen can also benefit from a casting lesson, especially if you want to increase your casting distance, learn how to deal with the wind, or begin to fish in saltwater
Casting lessons are fairly informal and scheduled. A private lesson is a great way to improve your fly casting skills and usually a lot of fun.
