In the early 1990's I hosted a number of guest fly-tying programs. In that period of time we had presenters such as Ron Alcott, Rob Solo, Bob Veverka, Michael Radencich, and Joe Messinger, Jr., for classes on full-dress, and hairwing salmon flies, and spinning deer hair. In addition to being a lot of fun, fellow tiers like Joe Penich, Bill Spicer, Don Bastian, and a number of other individuals benefited significantly and learned from these events. Lessons on fly tying, fly casting, and fly fishing techniques can provide significant benefits to the people who take advantage of these opportunities.
I realized even then as I do now how important it is to get a different perspective and instruction on fly tying and fly casting, where even teachers are students in the sense that a good instructor always continues to learn.
It is with great pleasure to announce that once again I will be hosting guest fly-fishers for special programs. We plan to present two guest casters this fall, and if the interest and response is good, then we will plan to expand this program. I will be assisting if necessary, but our plan is to host these programs with highly-qualified and experienced guest instructors. Fly Casting School can provide customized clinics and events for individuals, groups, and clubs. We are open to suggestions and would love to discuss a fly casting or instructional fishing event for you.
