Special Casting Class to Prepare for Pyramid Lake

Saturday September 16 from 8:30 – 11 AM and 1:00 – 3:30 PM

Come tune-up your casting and be ready for the season.

Join Master Casting Instructor Willy George, who fly fishes and teaches casting around the world, for TWO special casting seminars devoted to the casting techniques needed to be successful at Pyramid Lake.  In these classes you will learn how to increase your distance including using the double haul.  We’ll start with Willy’s Five Critical Steps to Longer Distance.  You will also learn how pick-up a sunken fly and deliver it back to your target in the fewest possible false casts. Each class will also cover how to cast safely in various wind directions.  Willy specializes in making complex casting techniques simple, understandable, and achievable for all casters and he will help you take your casting game to the next level.

The cost for these unique stand alone 2.5 hour classes is $125 at the time of registration.  The class size is very limited 6-8 students. Call the shop today to be able to spend some time with Willy learning and drawing upon his incredible skills as a teacher and fly caster.

Students should bring glasses (either sun or clear, for eye protection), a hat, jacket, sun screen, and their favorite Pyramid Lake rod, reel, line, and leader combination.  The instructor will provide practice flies for the students.

We will have loaner rods & reels loaded with the fly lines we recommend for Pyramid Lake available at no extra charge.

Contact the shop if you have any questions about what gear to bring and, of course, to register for this class. You can register in person or by calling 775-323-3474.
