Striving for casting and angling excellence

“Luck is where opportunity meets preparation”We teach you how to fly fish, which has a premise that dictates that one is to actually learn how to cast and catch their own fish.  I am truly fortunate to have been mentored by some of the finest casting instructors and anglers on the planet, both single hand and two hand.  After teaching flycasting for over 20 years, I still truly enjoy teaching the art and science of flycasting and angling to all skill levels to those who are willing to learn the craft of fly angling.
