FlyFishing Courses

Casting courses

Everyone can learn the art of fly fishing. It is essential to learn the “right” throwing techniques right from the start. Movement errors that are made from the start & settle down can only be corrected with great effort over time. In order to document this, we record the throwing techniques of our customers on video & optimize them at the same time if necessary.

Appointments individually according to your wishes. In order to guarantee the best possible coaching, we limit the number of participants in our throwing courses to a maximum of 4 people.

If no own equipment is available, we will provide the equipment for the course. Of course, we are happy to advise you, regardless of dealers, on the purchase of suitable equipment.
