With his fishing, teaching, writing and casting experience Mike Marshall, a top professional engineer, is ideally qualified to help everyone interested in casting and fly. This step by step DVD, will take the total beginner or an experienced fly caste to whatever level they aspire to, in a friendly and clearly understandable way. This huge casting reference work is something that no serious fly fisher can afford to by without and, as such, it is one of the most welcome and really helpful gifts they could ever be given.
Mike Marshall is the Chairman of the British Fly Casting Club and an authority on fly casting. He writes regularly for Trout Fisherman magazine and is a long time coach, casting instructor and has held many fly casting distance records. Mike has produced this 170 minute (yes....almost 3 hours!) DVD as a comprehensive guide to fly casting from absolute basics to advanced shooting head designs and everything in between. It is a low budget no fills, no nonsense approach guide for every single handed fly caster no matter your ability. Mikes concept is that this is effectively a library of fly casting information which you can dip in and out of as and when you need to.
This really is one of the most welcome gifts for anyone seriously interested in the art and craft of fly fishing.
