Goodbye New Hampshire.  Hello Colorado!

In August of 2017, we relocated to Denver, Colorado.  We now service the Denver metro area, and we can drive further distances to teach in your hometown.  








Who is First Cast Fly Fishing (FCFF)

For nearly a decade, FCFF was one of New England's premier fly casting instructional organizations.  In addition to private lessons, we created a fly-fishing program for students at Phillips Exeter Academy; and taught many classes at parks-n-recreation departments, public schools, and Trout Unlimited and Fly Fishers International gatherings.  We also served our community by donating lessons to charitable fundraisers, and we created the annual Cocheco River clean-up program.

Since day one, we believe our programs have offered the best educational experiences because:


  • We believe it is our duty to work ourselves out of a job -- we teach you skills and share knowledge so that you may continue to teaching yourself.
  • We do not follow the industry standard instructional model -- we believe it's outdated, and can be a waste of time and money.
  • Maximum four people per class -- a small class provides constant contact with the instructor and the best educational experience possible.
  • We offer step-by-step, developmental learning -- we don't believe in cramming a lifetime of knowledge into a 1-2 day program -- that's not how the human brain and body works.
  • Classes taught Monday through Sunday, at your convenience -- we don't herd clients into large, weekend only classes.

    Ready for Lessons

    We offer four fly casting classes, ranging from beginner to advanced.  Classes are taught in Wash-Park and surrounding communities.  Please visit: http://firstcastflyfishing.blogspot.com/p/lessons-guiding_22.html

    Big Trout Awesome Float

    I spent early Sunday morning this past week on the best float trip I’ve ever experienced landing some of the largest browns and rainbow trout I’ve ever landed. My son-in-laws Dad, Ron made the trip with me which was his first fly fishing experience. David Perry, our guide had him casting in no time and on fish soon into the float. The fog was still on the water in places as we made our way down the banks using our 6 weights 9 foot fly rods.

     
     
    Nice rainbow that give quite a fight on the 6 weight; this trout and the others I landed made up for the number I lost. Fish seem to always hit when the fisherman isn’t watching.

    Ron with a quality brown!

    After landing this brown I can honestly say that it put up more of a fight than the rainbow I landed earlier in the morning. I lost another brown in this size range because I wasn’t able to maneuver it away from structure.
      The prize of the morning for me was this 22” brown, which was the largest trout I’ve ever landed. I was beyond happy from the look on my face! A big thank you to David for making this one of my most memorable trout fishing trips; I’m looking forward to our next outing!!

    A Learning Curve

    My phone alarm went off at 5 AM and I was up and ready by 5:45 for my next fishing class on the Caney Fork. That’s what my trips are like every time I wet a fly on this beautiful tailrace now. I arrived at 7:30 suited up and made my way to some new areas on the river that I’ve not fished before. As usual the fog was present with no surface activity at all. With expectations of landing stocker trout again today I decided I would use my 3 wt. 9 ft. Streamflex.    

     
    Any of you guys think the brown is more of a fighter than the rainbow and brook?
    How I wish I could get my grass in my front yard to look this green—-a trout supermarket for sure.
    I’m still trying to break the 14” mark here and so far those size trout have eluded me. Fishing the Caney is going to take much more work on my part to equal the success I had on the Sipsey in Jasper Alabama.
    Thought I would share some images of my son Jason who lives in Sacramento fishing from his new Hobie Kayak. Fuller Lake north of Sacramentois one of the mountain lakes he fishes there.
     One of the colorful rainbow he landed for the afternoon fishing Lake Fuller!!
