"Ability is what you're capable of doing. Motivation determines what you do. Attitude determines how well you do it."
I am truly fortunate to have been mentored by some of the finest casting instructors on the planet, both single hand and spey. After teaching flycasting for over 20 years, I still truly enjoy teaching clients of all skill levels the beauty and art of fly casting.
