Why Hire a Certified Casting Instructor

The Federation of Fly Fishers, one of the two national fly fishing organizations, established a casting instructor certification program about 20 years ago with the intention of developing highly qualified instructors to teach and train fly fishing students properly. They did this because they believed that because good initial instruction greatly increases the number of people who stick with fly fishing and that a new fly fisherman's success in learning proper fly casting techniques reduces their frustration.

An FFF certified casting instructor must be a great fly caster, but also must be a good instructor. The certification process that an instructor goes through tests casting ability, fly fishing and fly casting knowledge, and tests the instructor's ability to present the proper casting techniques properly to a student. The casting instructor is guided by a Code of Conduct and Ethics established by the FFF Casting Board of Governors.

By hiring a certified casting instructor, you can be assured that you will receive a higher level of quality casting instruction, both in the content and the consistency of the information provided across the spectrum of FFF certified casting instructors.
