"You never get a 2nd chance to make a first cast"

Truly elite casting and angling instruction for angers who actually want to properly cast and fish well.  I am truly fortunate to have been mentored by some of the finest casting instructors and anglers on the planet, both single hand and spey casting.  After teaching flycasting for over 20 years, I still truly enjoy teaching the beauty and art of fly casting.
