Get Looped

"GET LOOPED" (FLY CASTING)

Why Get Looped? Because loop is the term we use to describe the shape the line takes as it comes out of the tip of your fly rod and travels to its destination, delivering the fly!!

Casting, of course, is the method we use in presenting a fly to a fish on a given body of water. If the fly stays in your hand, hangs from a guide on your fly rod, lays on the boat deck or stuck in your derriere the probability of you catching a fish drops drastically!.....therefore, casting is a necessity in fly fishing! Tongue and cheek of course, but you get the idea! I am an International Federation of Fly Fishers Master Certified Casting Instructor and I am (to use an overused word) “passionate” about Fly Casting as well as Fly Fishing! I actually have over fifty years fly fishing experience behind me and twenty five years of guiding and instructing under my belt. Let me help you get started, or help you improve in the sport by teaching you mechanics, exercises and terminology that you will need to become a better caster. If you are an intermediate and/or advanced caster, I can help you get to the next level with longer casts, curves, better control and accuracy. Lessons can and will be tailored to your specific needs….and they should be!

Rex can teach anyone to cast! I’ve seen him down on his knees with kids casting yarn rods one minute and in the next, he’s analyzing and tweaking the cast of an advanced caster to make them better! He (Rex) can throw a cast through a screen door! He’s one of the best!
