Accuracy and Roll Cast sessions

Morning - Accuracy matters (much more then you think). There are a vital set of skills for consistent accuracy, whether at 20 feet or 80 feet. These skills will also add to your overall casting. 

Afternoon - The Essential Roll Cast. The roll cast is a vital skill for many reasons. It is one of the fundamental casts and is used in many more situations than having “insufficient room for a backcast”.

Increase your distance

Morning session - No matter where you are on your fly fishing journey we all want to cast further. These days are dedicated to increasing your casting distance no matter where your starting point is. 


Afternoon - The Presentation casts. Dealing with the wind, casting big flies, presenting flies to your best advantage. Not all casts are about landing everything straight. Once we learn how to present a straight line we need to learn how to throw a line with a controlled layout that is determined by the presentation we need to make to a certain situation.
