Single Hand Rod casting is where most people start out learning the basic skill set to cast with a fly rod.

Fly line types and the corresponding casting methods used will determine the type of caster that you will become.

Traditional Method single hand casting focuses on utilizing a back cast to help load the rod. The other method of casting with a Single Hand Rod, uses Dynamic roll casts and line repositioning techniques.

The Dynamic Roll Casting method is not dependent on traditional single dimension casts to load the rod but rather a "D-Loop" and line repositioning techniques. This method of casting avoids back casting into bushes and other obstacles behind you while fishing streams and rivers.

Both methods can use a traditional Single Hand rod but Two Hand rods DO NOT have the same line types.  Whether learning either basic traditional casts or the "D-Loop" with line repositioning method, both types of casting with a Single Hand rod are relatively easy to learn.

Learning BOTH Single Hand Rod casting methods will increase your effectiveness while fly fishing.

Casting Instruction

Of the three stages of learning how to fly fish, learning to cast is the first stage. Casting comprises 1/3 of what it takes to become a successful fly angler. Our classes teach how to use a traditional single hand rod — or a two handed rod. You can not make an effective fly presentation without having good casting skills!
