Fly Casting and Spey Casting Lessons

"Fly Casting is Fun... As Long As You Are Doing it Right."


Fly Casting Lessons

Red's is here to help make you the best caster you can be. Fly casting isn't something you can master be looking at the internet. It takes mentorship, practice, and focused time working on the physical fundamentals of the cast.

Our friendly instructors offer 2 hour lessons in both basic and advanced casting. Take a course with us a few times each year for continuing education and a stronger cast.

Join our crew for one of our many casting lessons put on by Red's Fly Shop right here along the river at the Canyon River Ranch. We teach two different courses in both single hand and spey casting, so rest assured the instructor will meet you at your level.

 

Intro to Fly Casting Course

Students that either complete our University Core Classes, or have limited experience should enroll in our basic course. The instructor will repeat the basics and build on the existing skill set of the student. Thanks to a small class size, we can tailor our advice specifically to your level.

This lessons is helpful to enroll in more than once in order to help you progressively build your stroke. We don't believe casting is best learned on the water. During a lesson we can cognitively focus on your cast, and in our experience we see students progress at a much faster rate than attempting to learn while fishing.

Topics Include:

  • Casting Assessment
  • Tune-Up
  • Instruction Catered to Student Skill

Advanced Single Hand Casting

Being able to cast far is never a disadvantage. It means you have mastered the skill of casting into wind and develop line speed which translates into efficiciency and accuracy; both of which are always helpful to the angler.

This course is for intermediate to advanced casters that want help developing their Double-Haul technique which incorporates use of the line hand to generate more power. The Double-Haul is essential for anglers in saltwater, windy conditions, or casting large flies like streamers or sink tips. Keep in mind, there is no disadvantage!  

Topics Include:

  • Loop Architecture
  • Double Haul
  • Reach Casting
  • Shooting Line
  • General Tuneup

" Unlike a golf course, practice strokes are free and nobody will give you dirty looks. Get a lesson on the lawn and become a good caster."
