Video: How to Get Started in Fly Fishing – Fly Casting 101

Here’s a great video from the series called “Getting Started in Fly Fishing,” from Brian Flechsig of Mad River Outfitters in Columbus, Ohio. The first 13 episodes were in-the-classroom discussions in which Flechsig taught the viewer the basics about fly-fishing equipment, aquatic entomology, and flies.

Here, he finally gets out of the classroom and into the field for an extended lesson on how to fly cast. There are tons of good short videos about casting online–many by our own Pete Kutzer–but Flechsig spends a full half hour explaining his method for getting new anglers casting a fly like a pro. There is a ton of information here, and you may need to pause and rewatch a couple segments to really understand Flechsig’s point, but even proficient fly casters will find this video useful.

There are many different ways to conceive of and teach fly casting, and you may not agree with everything Flechsig says here (I don’t). But there is no doubt that anyone who follows his instructions is going to be ready to go fishing with a fly.
