Benefit Casting Class - Space Available

I would like your help while possibly helping yourself, and at the same time helping Hanna, a 15 year old karate student who was chosen to represent USA at the world competition in Osaka next month.

Unfortunately she has lost her father recently and her mom is unable to finance this trip so we are all doing our best to pitch in to get here there.

I would like to ask the members of the Flyfishing Forum to please help us by enrolling in a casting class with me at a discounted rate 100% of the proceeds will be applied to Hanna's cause. Since my hopes of helping via Seahawks bets were beaten by a pack of zebras I need a plan "B"

I am FFF certified in Two-handed / Spey casting and overhead with applications experience in saltwater, and am also an experienced single-hand casting instructor with emphasis on saltwater applications although I can show you a mean curve cast and have thrown thousands of mends on the rivers of the pacific northwest (no stranger to streams).

I will provide all gear unless you have a set-up you prefer to learn with.

The cost will be $150 for a full day class, maximum four students per class.

Illustrated handouts will accompany the class. Video analysis available.

Optional venues:

1) Single-hand overhead casting
a) introductory (get your wife or kids into it)
b) intermediate (strengthen the double haul, tighten the loop)
c) advanced distance and loop control (how to throw a whole line)

2) River Spey casting
a) introductory (getting started)
b) intermediate (expanding the horizon)
c) advanced tweaking (d-loop refinement, special casts, distance, long belly etc)

2) Beach two-handed
a) introduction, applied, distance (one curriculum)

Please consider helping out if you would, and thank you in advance!
