Default Learning to cast

If you are a newbie at fly casting, one of the best things to do is to find a fly fishing shop nearby where they offer free lessons. The benefit to the shop is you become a potential customer and for you, it's that you learn how to cast.

Admin - my apologies for posting in the wrong section. I was a bit too excited to get started. Will you please move this to Casting Out? Thanks

Totally agree with you on that one Skipper. The professionals at a fly shop can show you the best techniques so you are successful when you hit the waters. A friend who really knows what he is doing is also helpful, too.

Really? So they are willing to teach us for free as long as we buy fishing items there? How if we are not a fast learner, will they teach us till we master the technique?

Yes, there are some shops that will teach you how to cast for free. I didn't mean to imply that you have to buy stuff but for the shop the class is an extension of their customer service.

I learned how to cast by attending one of these free classes. The best part was I'd go back for equipment and the guy who taught the class knew me and was able to help me out when I was a fly fishing newbie.
