DUE TO COVID-19 HEALTH RESTRICTIONS ON CONGREGATING AND HOLDING GROUP EVENTS IN THE PARK, THE MAY 13TH, MAY 27TH, AND POSSIBLY SUBSEQUENT SCHEDULED DATES FOR THIS EVENT ARE CANCELLED PENDING THE FUTURE NOTICE OF THE LIFTING OF THESE SAFETY RESTRICTIONS.
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). The May 13th and June 24th evenings this year are Fly Fishing Crash Courses, which nights will basically be Cliff Notes for fly fishing. Knots, rigging, casting, reading water, and fly fishing techniques will be taught at three different stations.
"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 started to get together at the casting ponds to discuss the subtleties of the fly cast. In keeping with tradition, you will find good people, great advice, and camaraderie as you practice your casting skills with like-minded anglers.
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 a FFI 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. (firstname.lastname@example.org)
