Update:  Capt. Dave is now offering a complimentary one hour casting lesson for charter clients.  See below for the details.

Capt. Dave is the only Federation of Fly Fishers Certified Fly Casting Instructors on the Georgia Coast.  To become a Certified Instructor, a candidate must be a member of the Federation of Fly Fishers (, must pass an extensive written examination and then a demanding practical exam on how to cast, but more importantly, how to teach others to cast.  The exam includes casts for accuracy, special fishing situations, distance and common casting errors. To pass, a candidate has to exhibit extensive knowledge and experience in  fly fishing and fly casting in both fresh and salt water.  He/she must also be able to explain in simple terms how to make the cast, diagnose the cause of poor casts and how to correct and teach different types of fly casting techniques.

The theme of the CI program is not to show others how well the CI can cast, but to teach others how to cast so they can get more enjoyment from the sport.

Capt. Dave offers private or group instruction in fly casting as well as on water lessons in fishing from a flats boat.  Casting instruction, if requested, is always available during a charter trip.

If you are planning a trip out West or to the Appalachian Mountains for a trout fishing trip, Capt. Dave can teach you several different slack line casts, aerial mends, and upstream and downstream reach mends that will dramatically improve your drift and chances of catching selective trout in moving water.

If you are planning a trip to Alaska or the Northwest for Salmon or Steelhead, Capt. Dave can show you how to effectively cast shooting heads which are needed to get a fly down in these deep, heavy running rivers.

If you are planning a trip to the Bahamas, Florida or other salt water location, give Capt. Dave a call to work on that double haul to add accuracy and 20-30 extra feet to your cast.  That additional accuracy and distance might help you hook that spooky 10 lb bonefish or 100+lb Tarpon.

As an added bonus to charter clients, Capt. Dave will be happy to meet a few days before the charter for a complimentary one hour lesson.  He will analyze your casting, determine what you need to work on before the charter, teach you these techniques and give you some drills to practice before the charter.

If you are in the area you should take advantage of this complimentary lesson.  If you are coached, practice and improve your casting before the charter, you will have a much more enjoyable fishing trip and  a much better chance of catching fish.

This is just another bonus of booking a trip with Fly Cast Charters.  Click on the contact page to get in touch with Capt. Dave today and start improving your casting skills tomorrow.
