This is the place to go to solve casting problems, learn new skills or even have a video casting analysis---a powerful tool for improving your cast---all with FFI Certified Casting Instructors. The Casting Clinic will be available Friday, 8/10, from 12 p.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturday, 8/11, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Instruction is for all skill levels, beginner to expert. Bring your own rod, reel, and line or use one of ours.
Free Video Casting Analysis
And you thought your smart phone or tablet computer was only useful for emails, social media, and shopping. How about using these electronic devices to improve your fly casting skills? Join us on the casting field for a personal analysis of your casting technique using the video camera feature of a tablet computer. We’ll even supply the tablet computer, or you can use your own phone or tablet. We’ll show you “before” and “after” video and you can see the improvements for yourself. Your instructors are two FFI certified Master Casting Instructors: Macauley Lord, former Head Instructor of the L.L. Bean Fly Fishing School in Freeport, Maine, and Willy George, President of the Golden Gate Angling & Casting Club in San Francisco, California. You can borrow a loaner rod or bring your favorite fly rod and matching line along with a standard tapered leader. Free Video Casting Analysis is offered as part of the Casting Clinic at Ann Morrison Park on Friday August 10 and on Saturday August 11.
Join FFI Certified Two-Hand Casting Instructors gathering on the Boise River, Friday and Saturday 8/10 and 8/11 from 9-11 a.m. & 1-4 p.m. for a walk-up clinic to help diagnose and cure what ails your two-handed casting! The clinic is open to beginning and seasoned Spey casters looking to improve technique.
