Red's is here to help make you the best caster you can be. Fly casting isn't something you can learn on the internet. It takes mentorship, practice, and focused time working on the physical fundamentals of the cast. Our friendly instructors offer 2 hour lessons in both basic and advanced casting. Take a course with us a few times each year for continuing education and a stronger cast.
Basic and Advanced Classes
Join our crew for one of our many casting lessons put on by Red's Fly Shop right here along the river at Canyon River Ranch. We teach two different courses and love to help both beginners and experienced casters improve their stroke and abilities.
Advanced Casting and Double Haul
Being able to cast far is never a disadvantage. It means you have mastered the skill of casting into wind and develop line speed which translates into efficiciency and accuracy; both of which are always helpful to the angler.
This course is for intermediate to advanced casters that want help developing their Double-Haul technique which incorporates use of the line hand to generate more power. The Double-Haul is essential for anglers in saltwater, windy conditions, or casting large flies like streamers or sink tips. Keep in mind, there is no disadvantage!
Basic Single Hand Fly Casting
Students that either complete our University Core Classes, or have limited experience should enroll in our basic course. The instructor will repeat the basics and build on the existing skill set of the student. Thanks to a small class size, we can tailor our advice specifically to your level.
This lessons is helpful to enroll in more than once in order to help you progressively build your stroke. We don't believe casting is best learned on the water. During a lesson we can cognitively focus on your cast, and in our experience we see students progress at a much faster rate than attempting to learn while fishing.
