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

  • Golden Gate Angling & Casting Club 1232 John F Kennedy Drive San Francisco, CA, 94121 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.
