Fly-casting tuition is an investme
nt in yourself as you will benefit from improved technique and understanding. You will be importing knowledge which I have been fortunate to have gained from some of the most elite fly fishers and casters in the world over many years.
It is truly essential to have a foundation of knowledge and fundamental skills or you simply cannot improve beyond a certain level. Determination can quickly lead to frustration. It is often said that practise makes perfect but this can only be true when what is practised is correct. There is good practice and bad practice. Dont get better at mastering the wrong technique. Flycasting tuition can be provided at all levels from total beginner to advanced techniques, taken to a very high level of proficiency.
I am interested in all aspects of Fly-Fishing and in the teaching of Fly-Casting. I teach through an exercise system which I believe is the most efficient way for an individual to make real progress quickly. The exercises target specific areas of technique with economy of effort being the overriding principle in all aspects of my tuition. Maximum results can be achieved with minimal effort from finely tuned technique and control.
'Not only is he super efficient, his main skill is that he makes it look so easy'
