Learn to Fish Lessons & Instruction:
LTF ( Learn to Fish Lessons ) are available through our shop in Guelph Ontario.
We are the leader in General Fishing Instruction, Fly Fishing Lessons and Guiding, in the immediate and surrounding area.
Our instructors and guides will deliver a structured program that will get you “fishing” and hopefully “catching” quickly!
Many people have been intimidated by fishing or rather by fishermen …
Hook Line and Sinker & The First Cast’s vision is to guide and teach people how to Fish without the arrogance too often associated with our sport.
Your session is about you, and nature … not about us …
Perhaps you have been fishing for a while and not catching those “trophy” fish consistently.
You will gain much from the SSAFS ( Style Specific Advanced Fishing Sessions ), where our instructor will discuss and observe your skills and make adjustments or recommendations as necessary.
Whether you want to learn to master a basic spinning rod and reel, the baitcaster sitting in your closet because it’s frustrating, centerpin float rod and reel you bought on a whim, or the fly rod you received two years ago for Father’s Day, our instructors will guide you through the process in a way that you will participate and understand those principles while you practice them.
Our Customer Gallery will speak for itself.
Hook , Line and Sinker and The First Cast Fly Shop is proud to announce that although we are now offering individual or partnered 4 hour compressive sessions / lessons on selected Sundays.
Our 4 Hour Program Outline will include:
During the lesson, we will discuss and educate with regards to:
- Tackle selection and care – Rods, Reels, Lines , Lures;
- Essential fishing knots;
- Casting techniques and dynamics;
- Fishing strategies – Reading and understanding water, stalking and approach;
