On the Water Lessons: The best way to learn fly fishing is to fish with someone who really knows the sport. In a single day on the water you can soak up more knowledge that you could get out of months and months of reading books. Believe me. “Hands-on” training is right way to go. Your skill level will soar. Interested? E-mail me here

Fly Casting Lesson: Fly casting is fun. That doesn’t, however, mean it’s easy. In fact some say fly casting is one of the most difficult things to master in all of sports. I’m not sure that’s true, but there is definitely a learning curve.
Now just because someone is a good caster, doesn’t mean they can teach the subject. Oh,no. In fact I’ll go so far as to say that most fly casters have no real idea how to instruct. You need an experienced teacher, an instructor that quickly identify the problems, and is willing to slowly and clearly explain what needs to be done. I’ve taught fly casting for a long time -privately and in groups. And I’ve done public fly casting demostrations at both the Marlbough and Somerset Fly Fishing Shows. In addition, I was a member of the Federation of Fly Fishermen’s Flycasting Instructor Advisory Committee back in 1993, when they set up their flycasting instructor certification program.
Regardless whether your a rank beginner or have been fly casting for years, I can help you. Here are some subjects we can work on together. Smoothing out your cast, reducing effort, improving accuracy, narrowing you loop, removing tailing loops, dealing with the wind, improving distance, single haul, double haul, curve casts, steeple casts, the Belgium cast, the Reach cast, the Tuck cast, casting shooting heads and casting sinking line…
