Then we get after the fish. We are coaching all day but most people are catching fish almost from the start. By the end of a full day trip (8 hours) clients are casting well enough they can go out on their own.
Learning the basics is relatively easy. Improving on the basics is a life long pursuit. I've been fly fishing for 35 yrs and am still learning new things all the time. Get the basics at your casting lesson and have fun learning the rest as you go forward from there!!!
Man- you are getting me really eager! I have been to Jackson Hole years back, and I have family in Thermopolis. What do you fish for up there?
