Fort Collins Fly Fishing Lessons: Testimonial

 Today's Blog Post

I reviewed Mark’s website while looking for fly casting lessons in the Northern Colorado Area.  It almost seemed too good to be true.  I decided to call Mark and discuss his 1X casting class that my 23-year old son and I could take together.  My initial phone conversation went very well, and I went ahead and booked the class for the following week.  My Son had never fly fished before and it had been at least 50 years since I tried fly fishing with no luck or training.  We arrived at 1:30 pm and finished at 5pm. It turned out to be a great investment as well as great fun. Mark is an excellent instructor he is very organized and methodical while at the same time keeping the class interesting and fun.  He kept his word and by the end of the class we were able to cast 30 to 40 feet and occasionally 50 feet inside a 24” hula hoop with a dinner plate sized plastic ring in the middle. Both Mike and I were extremely pleased with the results so much so that we are looking at our schedules to see when we can book a two-day fishing trip with Mark.  We learned how to vertical and horizontal cast as well as roll cast. I feel like Mark is someone we can call for advice when we want to improve. The best thing about the class is knowing my new fly-fishing partner is my son.  Thanks Mark!
