At the Shad Fishout earlier this year members learned first hand how hard it is to cast into the teeth of a relentless wind. Standing on the east shore of the Sacramento River and heaving a fly line due west directly into a stiff wind proved very difficult for all but a few Flycasters.
Tony Yap is conducting a casting clinic which will address this exact situation. How to effectively cast in windy conditions.
The clinic will take place on Saturday morning October 19 at 10:00am at the Casting Ponds at Los Gatos Creek Park.
Tony is a master caster and an exceptional teacher. No matter what your casting skill level, attending this clinic will enhance your ability to cast in the wind.
The fee is $10 per member - the proceeds will help the Tournament Casting Team pay tournament expenses. $10 cash or checks payable to Flycasters Inc.
Bring your gear, eye protection (a must), maybe some sunscreen, a snack - the clinic will be a couple of hours - and as Tony says --- "Bring an open mind."
Sign up at the October 9 meeting - or you can show up at the ponds with your ten bucks - there should be plenty of space for all who wish to attend.
