Fort Collins Fly Fishing Lessons: Two Hand Casting

The secret of two hand casting is mastering single hand roll casts and utilizing teaching techniques/language  that allows people to maximize their natural brain-body intelligence (i.e., keep it simple).  

If you sign up for a two handed class, don't be surprised to spend lots of time with a single hand rod -- You will soon understand why and thank me later.

Client Testimonials 

Had the pleasure of taking a 2-handed casting class with Mark Foley this morning. A friend and I have been fishing single-handed rods for many years but wanted to expand our repertoire by fishing switch rods. Mark was great to work with and took all the mystery out of learning two-handed casting principles and also showed us how we can apply all of the same techniques to improve our single handed casting. Mark's teaching style was a perfect match as he showed us how we could build on the basic roll-cast to slowly work our way into a half dozen or so spey casts, without bogging us down with un-necessary technical discussions or history lessons - he just taught us what we needed to know to be able to go out and fish! Very much a productive way to spend a morning, would highly recommend Mark as fly casting instructor at any level and can see how he would make an excellent guide as well!

I really enjoyed the two handed casting instruction, it will be a game changer when I am off to big waters this fall . As a single handed caster for over 45 years, I appreciated your instruction wasn’t right “from the manual of Skagit, spey or two handed casting”, but rather very individualized to my strengths, weaknesses, good and bad habits. Given I had my shoulder replaced last year, there were a few motion and strength limitations that you were able to find alternatives or solutions to. Thanks again, I will be in touch.
