I like to see the new fisher get on the water ASAP.
I try to put them on water that does not require them to cast very far at all. Unfortunately it has been my experience that the eagerness of new fisher counter effects the patience it takes to learn fly casting, ending up with a major flail session.
Student with some athletic ability and a patient coach at their side can learn on the water in a fishing situation. This definately works best one on one IMO. With any luck maybe they will catch a fish
Cheers N I
Although the remote dog collar would prabaly work faster
