One of the most common problems fly fishers have when attempting to cast "just a little bit farther" is the tailing loop. Which often results in a "wind knot" more correctly known as a "casting knot" ... and knots in your line often result in lost fish - OUCH !!!!
Tony Yap is conducting a Casting Clinic on September 23rd at the Casting Ponds at Los Gatos Creek Park from 9:00am to noon -
Tony will address tailing loops, casting into the wind, and any other casting challenges we can throw at him.
Tony Yap is an accomplished fly fisher, a fantastic teacher, and a very successful tournament winning fly caster. His list of accomplishments in competitive fly casting is truly impressive.
Tony asks that you bring your favorite fly rod. Anything between 5 and 10 weight, with a reel and weight forward floating line, appropriate leader and tippet and some yarn (no hooks). Bring a notebook and pen to take notes. Be sure to bring protective eyewear. Sunglasses or eyeglasses - just as long as they cover your eyes. This is a requirement, without eye protection you cannot attend the clinic.
Tony also asks that if you have any questions about specific areas of casting please submit them in writing to him at the September 13th meeting, anonymously if you prefer, and Tony will answer them at the seminar.
The clinic is FREE for members of Flycasters - Parking inside the park is $6 --
