I took my neighbour (Romain) for a lesson today. Sometimes from the off, you get a feeling about a person and then you have to wait to see what happens next?
Romain was a complete novice to any type angling. Then after the 3 hour lesson, he turned it all around to someone (I feel) able to take himself off fly fishing with a basic understanding of the tackle, the over head and roll cast, knot tying and what ever I could throw at him in this short space of time.
Mastering the cast.
