Heres a rouges gallery of clients who have come for casting instruction, guided days on the usk and at Glyncorrwg ponds.
Lots of learning took place for all concerned!
Herc had arrived from Thurso, Scotland to meet up with Claire and Marsha to introduce them to flyfishing. Gludy is a great place to have your first cast as anglers can use the boat to make avoiding the wind a little easier. There were plenty of fish rising even in late october.
During the first hour, Herc learned to double haul. He picked it up in no time, even turning the fly over into a strong headwind.
Claire and Marsha used up the final 2hrs. They had never cast a line before so we started off with just trying to get a fishing cast together in order for them to be able to fish during the afternoon (Herc was already on the water). Both picked up the casting well with no dramas.
I hope they caught some fish….it was a long way to come for Herc to blank!
Heres Chris and his tight loops. Hes a natural straight out of the box. Very impressive after two hours instruction. Im hoping he gets the bug and keeps practicing.
