The Pechmann Fishing Education Center’s Introductory Fly-casting Course is designed as a fun and easy way for beginning fly anglers to give fly-casting a try. Or, you have some experience casting a fly rod and you may be looking to refine your fly-casting skills. This course presents a great way to improve your casting using tactile and visual cues that are easy to understand.
Their trained volunteer instructors will guide you through the roll cast and basic cast using Joan Wulff’s method of fly-casting that provides the beginning fly- angler with the foundations for more advanced casting. Class size is limited to 20 participants to ensure adequate one on one coaching from our qualified cadre of volunteers. The minimum age requirement is 12 years old and participants 15 years old and younger must be under the supervision of a parent or guardian.
Fly rods and other necessary equipment will be provided by the Pechmann Center. However, we require that all participants wear closed-toe shoes, a hat with visor, and some sort of eyewear (polarized sunglasses are recommended). This course is offered free of charge and preregistration is required.
