These pictures were taken at Alton Baker Park during the casting section of the Caddis Fly Shop’s Introduction to Fly Fishing Class. Last weekend’s class braved the elements at to learn from instructor Steve Baker. Steve has been the shop’s instructor for about the last 15 years, his day job is public relations with King Estate Winery.
Steve covered the roll cast, pick up and lay down, and false casting with demonstrations. Steve also spoke about insect hatches. The class then followed with casting practice on the ponds at the park. All equipment is furnished by the Caddis Shop for the class. Prior to casting sessions, the class met on Friday night at the Caddis Fly Shop for instruction of knots, fly fishing equipment, insects, and fly line designs.
