    Default Question on Casting and Tying Lessons

    Ok, So I am thinking of giving tying and casting lessons. Do I need a license to do this? I get a lot of people that ask me if someone does them...and no one does. Also, what would you charge?

    if you're just going to be a really nice guy and do it for friends for free, then probably no....but if you are thinking of hanging out a shingle and charging money they you'll likely need typical business licenses from your state. Then there's taxes, social security. aiyiyiyiyi...... you get the drift. As far as I am aware no special "casting" licenses are needed (or even exist) though FFF certification might help you spread your business. Check with state licensing bureaus... they're all on line.

    complete shot from the hip here but I don't think MT regulates casting and fly tying. It might get a little tricky though if you are out on a river vs. in a park for the casting aspect. Someone who is pretty bored in their rig could say you are guiding at that point. This site will get you started though; and I've learned sometimes just call 'em up!
