FCFF Practical Casting Day

Want to cast better? Be more accurate? Throw longer lines? Come to FCFF’s Practical Casting Day on Saturday, June 7, 9 a.m., at Doug and Theresa Moore’s M & M Dairy.

FCCF’s own David Lambert will discuss, demonstrate, and diagnose techniques you’ll need to hit that target-fish, no matter how close or how far. As a nationally recognized master casting instructor Lambert has taught side-by-side with the nation’s best, including Lefty Kreh, Bob Clouser, Mel Krieger, Jon Cave, Ed Jaworowski, Mac Brown and many others. Assisting will be expert caster Dick Michaelson and our newest FFF-certified casting instructor Rich Santos.

We will have a variety of TFO rods on hand to test, including the new TFO Axiom. FCFF Practical Casting Day is free to FCFF members. Lunch and drinks will be provided.

Lambert and crew demo and teach techniques for:

· Wind Casting – Casting into a headwind; casting with wind from either side; casting with a tailwind

· Casting Accuracy – Techniques and practice suggestions on how controlling where and how your fly should land, on both short and longer casts

· Distance Casting – Distance comes when you do everything else right. Lambert will demo, discuss, and diagnose distance concepts, problems, and offer some productive practice routines for increasing your casting distance. Lambert will demo and teach the ‘square-cast’ distance technique.

· Grass Casting – The Reds-in-the-Grass season is soon upon us. Learn quick pickup and other grass techniques that will help improve your grass fishing catch ratio.

· Roll Casts and Distance Roll Casts – A roll cast is a much needed weapon in your casting quiver. It’s a valuable in saltwater as in fresh water.

· General Practice Techniques – Techniques and methods to guarantee casting improvement

· Building and Using Quick Leaders – Which leader is really necessary and how to build them. Hand-on. Club will provide all materials.

· Casting Courses and Fun-For-All Casting Competition – the club will have a couple of casting courses at which members can test their new found casting skills at. A fun end-of the-day casting competition on these courses. Prizes will be awarded for the winners. No instructors allowed to compete.
