Description

Learn the basic casts required to get started in the sport of fly fishing on this private, 2-hour casting lesson in Austin, Texas. Each student will learn the three basic casts — overhand, sidearm, and roll cast — that are needed to build a solid foundation in fly fishing. All the necessary equipment will be provided as well as handouts to remind students of all the concepts covered in the lesson. Local hotel pickup and drop-off included.

This fly-fishing lesson will start with a full explanation of the fly rod and reel, plus its function, care, and storage. Next, the theory behind fly casting will be discussed. After the function of the equipment and the theory behind the cast is understood, the students will move to the 'hands-on' portion of the lesson. The overhand cast is the first cast covered. Since it is the most often used, it will be given the most time in the lesson and must be mastered before the student can move on to the next two casts.

After the overhand cast has been mastered, the sidearm will be covered and then the roll cast. When the student has a full understanding of all three casts, they will then be taught how to practice, the real heart of the lesson. The method used for practice, if followed exactly, will assure every student success. The lesson raps up with a question and answer session and a quick review of all the topics covered.

A local hotel pickup and drop-off is included.
