Getting Ready For The New Trout Season? Throw Off The Cobwebs With A Casting Lesson!

Fly Casting Tuition with Gareth Lewis Fly Fishing

That’s right folks, the 2012 trout season is now upon us and the excitement is growing! Things can be a little slow during this colder first month, but temperatures are rising, olives are hatching and, most importantly for the angler, fish are feeding!

If you’ve not been mad lucky enough to venture out during the frosty winter months in the pursuit of grayling, a casting lesson is a great way of blowing away the ‘casting cobwebs’. A golfer will have kept their skills in-check at the driving range; I see no reason why we should treat fishing any differently. A lot of anglers spend the winter filling fly boxes, however, come the new season, if they aren’t able to present the fly accordingly, all those lovely fly patterns won’t mean much.

Whether you have been fishing for zero years or forty years, I’m able to cover all of your single-handed casting requirements, and at a range of locations. Whether you are brand new and would like a grounds-up approach on grass, or whether you are looking to develop your casting skills by adding a new water-borne cast, I’ll be happy to coach you through everything you need to know.
