This class will show you how to do some of these casts and mends, from a simple reach mend to aerial stack mends.

We will also discuss leaders and tippets and how to adjust them to get the most natural presentation of your fly.

We will also discuss how to best approach a fish in order to make your presentation casts easier.

Details are still being worked out for this class. But, just the fact that the Buehler Boys are putting this on is reason enough to sign up.  Space is limited so get on the list fast.
