| 1 Comment | No TrackBacks

Joseph Meyer, the great teacher of fly casting for Chicago fishermen, is offering one-hour lessons on-water this weekend.; and I highly recommend it.

I had the chance to do this a couple years ago on Salt Creek in Hinsdale and came away much impressed with his teaching, and actually improved my fly casting and my understanding of what I should be trying to do when fly casting.

Here are the details on the reduced price offer from Meyer:

Want to become a better stream angler? Here is an opportunity to receive individual instruction from Joseph Meyer while on the water.
I am offering this one-hour, individual casting lesson designed to improve your small-stream casting skills.  You will need boots and waders as we will work on your casting, drifting and mending skills while wading an area stream.  Individual Instruction for this one day special will take place every hour, on the hour from starting at 8:00 a.m. and running til 4:00 p.m. 
This is an excellent opportunity for anglers of all levels to improve your skills at this reduced price. My normal fee for an individual lesson is $65 but I am offering this opportunity for just $50.

     The one hour on the water class on Saturday, August 25th will be held on Salt Creek in Hinsdale.  
     The one hour on the water class on Sunday, August 26th will be held on the Fox River in South Batavia.

     To reserve your hour slot you may sign up via return email or by calling my cell 630.418.5685
