  • Casting ponds at Golden Gate Park, SF

Note:  This (mostly alternating) Wednesday evening casting event is FREE and open to the public. No prior registration required.  Just show up each night with your own fly rod and yarn fly (no club rods will be issued for this, but George may be able to provide a loaner rod if arranged in advance-- see contact info below). 

"In Search of the Perfect Cast" is an after-work casting session dedicated to teaching fly anglers how to improve their casting technique through deliberate practice and drills. It all began when a few casting nerds would bring a bottle of whiskey to the casting ponds and discuss the subtleties of the fly cast. In keeping with tradition, you will find good people, good beverages, and great advice as you practice your casting.

Our class is designed to accommodate fly casters at all skill levels in advancing their fishing abilities. We focus on teaching foundational techniques and concepts that you can further explore on your own time, in future classes and on the stream. We will explore techniques ranging from the fundamentals of loop shape, timing, and trajectory to the finer points of single hand spey casting techniques. You will have the opportunity to play with equipment ranging from the modern graphite fly rod to the traditions of bamboo and fiberglass.

Your lead instructor, George Revel, is IFFF Master Certified Casting Instructor, Past President of Golden Gate Angling and Casting Club, California Trout Ambassador, National Casting Champion, and owner of Lost Coast Outfitters - The San Francisco Fly Shop. (george@lostcoastoutfitters.com)
