Yes, there are many facets to fly fishing but if you have trouble delivering the fly to the fish in all weather and wind conditions, then investing in fly casting lessons will help improve your catch rate. Better still, these lessons will not only improve your technique, but your understanding of the cast.
Christopher passed his FFF Certified Casting Instructors (CCI) exam many years ago and has been teaching casting for over two decades. In fact, he originally got into guiding through being a casting instructor!
From beginners to advanced casters, we can help improve your cast and give you personalised practice drills and individual fine-tuning that will have you delivering pin point casts in no time. We will take you to the next level of fly casting.
Like everything, it is critical that you don't practice bad habits and fly casting is no different. Time spent with us in a local park or waterway is a lifelong investment and will demystify the art of fly casting.
Whether you are having trouble getting started, shooting line, casting accurately, casting into the wind, using heavy flies, double hauling or having any other casting issue we can help you refine your skills and have you feeling confident when faced with any situation.
Although Christopher spends many days guiding and fishing on still waters, he has a particular interest and love of stream craft and dry fly presentation. From the importance of using the correct leader set ups, lines and rods all the way through to casting and mending techniques Christopher can help you go to the next level and beyond. Whether you want to improve your curve casts, reach casts, slack line casts, aerial mends or simply want to learn the best way to get your fly into a tight spot, these are the things that we teach every day. Those wanting to learn about European short line nymphing techniques and the different casts that are used to execute the best drifts, could not come to a better person. These techniques and the casts they require are the foundation for the success Christopher has had in national and international competitions in recent years. The months and years that he has spent in Europe and experienced gained will be passed on to you.
Christopher has extensively travelled to Japan and Europe, fishing and casting with the top anglers these regions have to offer in order to bring this knowledge and information to you. As a multiple Australian representative at the World Fly Fishing Championships and current team member, he is able to stay up to date with the latest in fly fishing and fly presentation. Coupled with his ability to simplify things and explain things in many different ways depending on your preferred method of learning, this gives you the best possible chance of reaching your full potential.
Lessons can be run for individuals or small groups. Although there is no excuse for not practicing your casting regularly, summer months are harder to secure casting lessons as Christopher is guiding almost every day of the season. Having said that, early mornings can often be arranged at the busy time of year while winter is much more flexible.
Casting lessons cost $50 per hour.
