Thumbs up WW flyfishing in IA

Hello everyone, I am new to this site - all of my is warmwater here in Iowa. I started flyfishing 2 years ago and have not gone a day without my wife shaking her head in amaizement of my obsession. Since we only have warm water here in Iowa I am working on continually searching for a go-to flie when fishing for bass.
I would have to say that the common grasshopper flie has done the best. As with fishing for trout, size does not always matter when tossing a terrestrial. Some of my largest bass have been caught on a #6 streamer hook grasshopper.
Smallies I have had luck with black wollybuggers.
Anyway - I look forward to learning a lot from everyone in the future, I already have one question.

Should I make the envestment of being a certified casting instructor?

Thanks for any input folks.
