At First Cast Fly Fishing, we do things differently. For example, our business, or lack of, is nothing like most fish guiding services. Our organization is run as a not for profit, donation only, entity. Sounds crazy...I know; but it works and our clients love it. I think they love it because much of what we do is rooted in being an affordable, highly educational, resource for our community. We call this approach, '100% Community First.' That being said, each year, we donate our services to a handful of non-profits that are committed to serving our communities. We regularly donate to:
- New Hampshire Public TV http://www.nhptv.org/auction/thanks_holiday12.asp
- Southeast Land Trust of New Hampshire http://www.seltnh.org/
- New Generation http://www.newgennh.org/
- New Outlook http://newoutlook.org/
If you are interested in supporting these groups and many others that we work with, we donate the following:
E.I. Fly™1X: Beginner Level (Basic Casting On-Land Only)
This beginner class is designed for those who have a general curiosity about fly-fishing and who say, “I would love to learn how to fly fish, but I don’t have the time or gear to learn." To get you started, we review rod set-up/balance, casting theory-instruction, and casting drills & skills.
The E.I. Fly™1X class is easily accessible and can be taught in a variety of locations. For Example: work, home, and local park's. Students are given the rare opportunity to cast the ECHO micro practice rod and fast and medium action fly rods. By offering this unique combination of casting instruction and use of top brand equipment, our students’ fly fishing skill and intelligence improves immediately. Note: instruction is on land and we are not actively trying to catch fish.
E.I. Fly™4X: Advance Level (In the Water-River)
This is the highest level of instruction and guiding…be prepared to catch fish!
The E.I. Fly™4X course has been designed for students who have completed E.I. Fly™1X, 2X and 3X; or any 'advance' fly fisherman desiring 1:1 on-water instruction and/or guiding. Whether you are a student or a sport (advance fly fisherman), you will find yourself on technical water (river) experiencing a variety of fly fishing techniques…. all designed to build your fly fishing confidence and skill. If you are a student, by days end, you will be able to start fishing on your own.
E.I. Fly™5X Fly Tying: Beginner Level
There are thousands of flies to tie and hundreds of equipment options to chose from.
Where do you start? We believe you should keep it simple and focus on the basic fundamentals of fly tying. Once you master the basic 'fundamentals' you'll be able to tie any fly in the world! If you sign-up for a series of lessons, you will learn how to tie a set of 'time tested' flies that are guaranteed to catch fish. All equipment and materials are provided.
FCFF provides all the equipment and supplies
We are 100% committed to our community. If you know of an organization that would benefit from our donation/services, please feel free to pass along our contact info...we would love to help raise money for your group.
