On Saturday, May 15, 2021, the club will be holding a casting clinic for intermediate and advanced fly casters. The clinic will be followed by 1 hour individual casting instruction for casters of all skill levels from beginners to advanced. It will not be necessary to attend the morning clinic in order to have an individual lesson.
The leader of both the clinic and the individual lessons will be Jeff Ferguson who is one of the few Master Casting Instructors in the world certified by Fly Fishers International where Jeff serves as a member of the Casting Board of Governors.
The clinic and individual instruction will be held at Tom Bass Park near the intersection of Highway 288 & The Sam Houston Toll Way. Detailed instructions with regard to the specific location at the Park will be provided to participants prior to the event.
The clinic will begin at 8:30 am and will last until approximately 12:30 pm. This is a clinic for advanced and intermediate fly casters and will include such subjects as refinning the student’s double haul, the curve cast and casting on water from a static to a jump roll cast. Beginning at 1:15 pm, Jeff will begin providing individual casting instruction to the individuals who have registered for the private lessons. The lesson times will be: 1:15-2:15; 2:30-3:30 and 3:45-4:45. These lessons will be for fly casters of all skill levels from beginner to advanced.
