The November 11th RSFF program will present a unique fly casting training event for attending members and visitors thanks to our own Roger del Rio. Roger was one of the first RSFF members who showed me the casting ropes so I know personally that he is an excellent casting instructor. He is an IFFF Certified Casting Instructor and has given instruction at a variety of events for the RSFF including Hunting and Fishing Day, Fly Fishing 101, and the Red Stick Day Conclave.
For the November RSFF program event, Roger will introduce us to the Orvis casting/teaching tool uniquely designed for indoor use.
Roger will give an introduction for all meeting attendees to the Orvis teaching tool and discuss some casting pointers that the tool can help improve in everyone's casting. Following this, Roger will open the program up to anyone who wants to try out the Orvis casting and teaching tool to help improve their casting. Roger has said that the Orvis tool
is a good way to both get started in fly casting and for the more
experienced casters to correct errors and improve their casting stroke. For the program, we will move to the back of the room and clear some chairs
so we have a straight corridor to do some indoor casting. So if you need some help on your fly casting technique or just want to see what is new in fly casting instruction, you won't want to miss Roger del Rio's program.
