This class is geared to the saltwater fly-fisherman, looking to increase the distance of their average cast. Distance seminars will cover the essential elements of distance casting: proper loading and unloading of the fly rod, forming tight loops, lengthening the casting stroke with drift and the double haul. Students should bring their own gear, 7–10 wt rod with a matching weight forward floating line is ideal (no sinking lines please).

8 people maximum per class - 3 hours total

1:30-4:30 PM - Meet at shop 15 minutes prior.
