 You may have seen them before, those strange fly fishermen on the meadow. Completely without water nearby, they wave their rods around. But rest assured, the good ladies and gentlemen are fine. They are honing their casting technique. If you're wondering why they do this on the meadow and not by a beautiful mountain stream, read on...

Fly fishing is like driving a car. You probably didn't drive on the highway for your first few rounds either. Learning the correct and clean technique is a must. On the meadow, you will learn the necessary movements so that your fly line and, of course, your fly will end up in the right place. At the same time, you must pay attention to many small details. In a car, this would be: press the clutch, shift gears, release the clutch and don't forget to give it gas... do you remember?

I will be your personal driving instructor. I will watch you, show you the cast, give you tips and tricks and correct you when necessary. Together we will work on the foundation for your future as a fly fisherman. On the meadow, you can focus fully on the processes and don't have to worry about the traffic. You will soon enough get to know the beloved trees, plants, stones, bushes, branches and fellow fishermen.

On the second day of the course, we will go to the water. I will show you the habitat of the fish, what they eat and what we can use to catch the finned creatures. We will review what we have learned and go more in depth on the tackle. Your FLYTASTIC course equipment consists of

 Your FLYTASTIC course equipment consists of handmade rods, equipped with the appropriate reel and line. You will learn what a leader is and how to tie a fly. After some instruction, we'll get started! The first casts will be made on the water. With a bit of luck, the first trout will soon be wriggling on your rod.

By the way, FLYTASTIC workshops are flexible in terms of scheduling. So after you get in touch with us, we can decide together on the best location and time for you!
