Chris Korich (World Casting Champion and U.S. Team Coach) and fellow volunteer instructors at Bay Area angling & casting clubs, are helping prepare local kids (ages 8-12) for future fly fishing opportunities.
FUN youth casting sessions will emphasize the following foundational fly fishing skills, conservation and safety education:
- Grip & Stance Alignment (at targets!)
- Roll Casting
- Pick Up & Lay-Down casts
- Line Extending & Retrieving
- Fish hooking, fighting & releasing
- Eye, skin and water safety
While pre-teen instruction will focus on learning basic fly casting skills by performing FUN drills and playing games, we will also be teaching your child about proper tackle use, set-up/take-down, maintenance, and basic knot tying.
