Casting Coaches' Assessment Clinic

27 Oct 2023 8:06 AM | Brian Martin (Administrator)

Our first casting clinic in quite a while was held in Ann Morrison park on Friday the 13th (what were we thinking?). Thankfully, it went very well. Joy and Don Knickrehm are leading our Education mission and this is the beginning of what we plan to be a benefit to our members as well as public educational opportunities regarding fly fishing. The weather was terrific aside from the slight breeze that was blowing leaves off of the trees.

The clinic's purpose was to indetify individuals interested in helping others develop their fly casting skills. We are using a newly developed program by Fly Fishers International (FFI) that allows fly casters to test their skills at 4 different levels - Foundation, Bronze, Silver, and Gold. Each level gets progressively more challenging and the skills called for segue nicely onto the rivers and stillwaters.

We had 19 individuals cast the Foundation and Bronze level courses. All did exceedingly well and their feedback was much welcomed and appreciated.

Future casting clinics are in the works. Keep an eye on for upcoming dates. Aslo, our 2024 Western Idaho Fly Fishing Expo will have 2 FFI certified casting instructors presenting this program and demonstrating the casting skills. Go to the EXPO 2024 website at for more.
