Fly Fishers International certified casting instructor logo

Update: Fly casting instruction will greatly improve your odds of catching fish. Capt. Dave is now offering a reduced cost one-hour casting lesson for charter clients.  See below for the details.

Capt. Dave is the only Federation of Fly Fishers Certified Fly Casting Instructor in the Golden Isles.  To become a Certified Instructor, a candidate must be a member of Fly Fishers International, must pass an extensive written examination and then a demanding practical exam on how to cast, but more importantly, proper fly casting instruction.  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 fly casting instruction as well as on-water lessons in fishing from a flats boat.  Fly casting instruction, if requested, is always available during a charter trip.

If you are planning a trip to the Northeast, 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, the Northwest or the Great Lakes for Trout, 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.

Capt. Dave has extensive, personal experience fishing and fly casting instructions for all and in all of these areas.

Proper casting technique will greatly improve your odds of success on a charter. Capt. Dave will be happy to meet a few days before the charter for a 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. The reduced cost of a one-hour lesson for charter clients is $50.00.

If you are in the area, you should take advantage of this offer.  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.
