Casting Clinic

Each August the Santiam Flycasters offer a casting clinic for the general public and club members. Warm-up casting begins at 6:30pm on the lawn area in front of Pringle Park. While equipment is provided for the general public, feel free to bring your own equipment to use.

Then, at 7pm IFFF Master and Two-hand Certified Instructor Dwight Klemin will present a twenty minute demonstration/talk "A Foundational Casting Stroke: Connecting the Two-hand World and the Single-hand World."

Klem opened the 14th annual Sandy River Spey Clave in May with this presentation, which focuses on developing a solid foundation casting stroke. After, several Certified Instructors from the club and the North Santiam Spey Casters will offer one-on-one instruction.

Dwight Klemin MCI/THCI was recently awarded "Outstanding Mentor of the Year" from the International Federation of Fly Fishers for his work with students to become a Certified Instructor through the IFFF program.
