Fly Casting Skills Development

The next FCSD session will be on July 20th at the Forest Charter School Playfield in Nevada City and is open to the community. If you would like to join the members of GCFF and develop your fly casting skills, no matter your skill level. From beginner to advanced. Please join us at this FCSD session on the grass at 625 Zion Street, Nevada City.

The FCSD Foundation level is a great starting place for those picking up a fly rod for the first time, or beginners with some fishing experience. You will learn the foundation of fly casting: loop formation and control. If you are interested in the Foundation level, please register for either the 10am or 12noon session.
