Basic Two-Handed Casting Class


Mike McCune2whitney Gould

We are excited to host a two-handed rod class with instructors Mike McCune and Whitney Gould. Both are well known in the two-handed world and will be in Idaho Falls in mid May to share their knowledge and enthusiasm for this style of casting.

The class is directed at the beginning to intermediate level caster. It will cover a variety of casts, line tapers, and familiarize you with a lot of the two-handed rod terminology. Mike and Whitney will teach you which cast is best based on wind direction, casting room, and which side of the river you are fishing from.

We recommend bringing your own tackle, however tackle will be available for anyone not having a two-handed outfit. We’ll be in the water (shallow wading), so hip or chest waders are needed.

There are two dates to choose from: Saturday, May 9th and Sunday, May 10th.  Both classes start at 9 AM and continue into the afternoon with a break for lunch. Class location, TBD, is on the Snake River near Idaho Falls. Class size is limited to 6 casters to ensure as much individual instruction as possible from Mike and Whitney.

Class fee is $200.00 per student and includes lunch.  Please call the shop (208-524-7160) to reserve a space, for more information, or if you have any questions.
