Do I need a Coach?
If you currently fly fish and are enjoying yourself, you are probably doing it the right way. However, if you want to improve by being more accurate, more efficient, and even cast further, then a lesson or two will benefit you. Many students schedule after having a rough experience on a guide trip, or an outing in conditions new to them. Preparation and practice beforehand are a much better plan.
What Can I Expect?
Expect a lot. Expect to improve. Expect to get more by doing less. Hitting targets consistently, casting in ALL wind conditions, presenting a fly under and even around obstacles, and doing it at greater distances are all skills that will be improved.
