Need Help with your Casting??


Our casting clinics are conducted on the first (1st) Saturday of the month at Chumash Park 750 S. Pettit Ave. Ventura. From 9am to 11am.  Please check the event calendar for the exact time and place.  Bob Smith is currently our Casting Director and is an FFI Certified Fly Casting Instructor.  Bob is available to anyone who would like some help with their casting.  Just give him a call at (805) 647-3522.


On December 2nd we will have our next “1 st Saturday Casting Clinic”. As before, it will be at Chumash Park in East Ventura, 9:00 to 11:00AM. The turnout from our members, and from the community, has been great. Your help in teaching those from the community is really appreciated. I’ve always felt that when you help others it helps you. If there is a specific cast or technique you would like to work on or a problem you are having, please let me know and I will do my best to help. Good news. This October clinic was scheduled to be the last for this year but since there has been such a good response we are going to continue our Saturday clinics on the first Saturday of every month untill further notice. So write CASTING on your calendar for the first saturday of the month. I would really appreciate your comments and suggestions as to how we can make our casting program better, and ways to reach those in our community who might have an interest in fly fishing (the local Star no longer has a Community Events section). Again, thank you for your support, and we’ll see you on the first Saturday of the month.
