Casting Lessons
Casting the fly is usually the biggest hurdle to catching fish and often a leading cause of frustration. Part of the problem is not understanding the five simple principles of casting. Yes it’s some some physics and dynamics but I use terms like throwing frisbees, using a hammer or paint brush to sort it all out. The other part of the problem is understanding suitable equipment, flies, lines, rigging and knots all of which can be incorporated into your lesson. Lessons are done on a local ball field in Belmont, NC.

I also offer saltwater casting lessons and can provide casting of 8-9-11wt rods as well. This is especially important if planning and working on casting for any upcoming “salty” excursions. Casting is a part of every trip I offer as well as we learn line control casts and casts that catch fish!
  • Cost is $60 per lesson
  • Average time is 60-90 minutes
  • Additional angler is $75
  • Small groups can be arranged
  • Use my equipment or bring your own to use or for evaluation
Paul was an amazing guide for fly fishing. He was patient as I was a first-timer. You can tell he is passionate about the work he does and knew great spots to take us! Within our first hour we all caught about 2-3 each! He was helpful when lines got caught in trees and a great guide to help us cross to other side if needed. I highly recommend his services, you will not be disappointed.
