Advanced Casting Clinic this Saturday

There are still two spots open for the Advanced Casting Clinic this Saturday, September 25th.  The clinic is open to all members of Kisatchie Fly Fishers.  There is no cost.  Seats were limited to twelve persons, to insure a quality learning experience for attendees.

Jeff Ferguson, a master casting instructor, evaluator and member, FFI Casting Board of Governors, (and also a member of KFF) will be instructor.  Roger Breedlove and Chris Perkins worked with Jeff to set up a program, secure a casting site and a briefing room at the Westside Library.  Details are in an email sent out by Chris.  If you did not receive this email, please contact Chris at 

The program is planned to run from 9:00 am  to 3:00 pm off Versaille. This clinic will be an outstanding opportunity to learn fly casting techniques along with thought provoking insights into rationales behind various casts in fly fishing.  This is a great opportunity to learn from a master fly casting instructor.  Come out, enjoy it, and say thanks to Jeff, Roger and Chris.
