FUN-damentals of Fly Casting, Gear & Knots for Kids

  • Oakland Casting Club Oakland Casting Club, Elinora Ave Oakland, CA 94619 United States (map)

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.
