TONY YAP CASTING CLINIC – Thursday June 22
“Presentation is everything” Understanding the mechanics of fly casting will go a long way to improving your accuracy and distance, and a more efficient casting motion will allow you to fish longer with less arm fatigue.
The clinic will begin at 5:00pm on Thursday – June 22nd – until dusk.
Tony Yap is an accomplished fly fisher, a fantastic teacher, and a very successful tournament winning fly caster, a three time National Champion. His list of accomplishments in competitive fly casting is truly impressive.
Bring your favorite fly rod. Anything between 5 and 10 weight, with a reel and weight forward floating line, appropriate leader and tippet and some yarn (no hooks).
Bring a notebook and pen to take notes. Use your camera or phone to video.
Be sure to bring protective eyewear. Sunglasses or eyeglasses - just as long as they cover your eyes. This is a requirement, without eye protection you cannot attend the clinic.
The BBQ will be on and hot dogs and brats will be available. Please bring something to drink (water, soda, beer, wine) and additional treats to share (deserts, salad, etc.)
The clinic is FREE for members and parking at the ponds is $6 - payable at the kiosk - they do ticket non-payers
