• Casting off the opposite shoulder - Why?

• How to fish a typical pool with a floating line.
• Lunch at the hut (generally provided by the hotel).
• Hooking, Playing and Landing fish – The theory!

• For Casting and Fishing courses include an evening of casting/fishing/tackle theory with questions and answers. Although light-hearted, those sessions I find invaluable in the overall development of individual understanding.
