I had the pleasure of a casting lesson with Don last weekend. I had never handled a fly rod before the lesson, and I have fished with a spin rod only a handful of times in my life. At the conclusion of my lesson with Don, I was casting effectively on his trout pond. Perhaps more importantly, Don's systematic and patient instruction also teaches why certain motions produce an accurate cast, whereas other motions impair accuracy. In addition to enjoying the learning experience, I also enjoyed simply spending a few hours on the beautiful property. Thanks, Don!
