How to Fly Cast: Goal 2 – Line Control



Controlling your fly line is the goal. Accuracy, efficiency and happiness on every cast is the payoff.





Education

• Pulling fly line from air

• Pulling fly line from water

• Fly line control at all angles

Equipment

• Confirming your fly equipment is balanced

• Balancing your fly equipment, if possible

• Demonstrating balanced, efficient Leland equipment

Experience

• Fly cast where others cannot

• Fish your fly where others cannot

• Catch fish others cannot



Leveraging what you've mastered from Goal 1 – Forming an efficient Loop, it's now time to add control to your fly casting game with fly casts up to forty feet.



Fly line control is imperative to fish catching success. Simply put, the world's greatest fly (if there actually was one) is nearly useless unless you can put it where you want it. We'll make sure you'll have the skill set to accurately place your fly where you wish.



Furthermore, with our proven casting principles, you'll be on your way to understanding how to fly cast in challenging situations that other anglers deem impossible. You'll be able to access waters (and the fish in these waters) that to other anglers, simply don't exist.



We call this approach, “private water casting.” In essence, there is private water within every public stream or river that is often unfished. We'll give you the principles, understanding and techniques to fish this untouched water and catch the best fish in the run.




Whether air casting or water casting, your fly fishing world will expand greatly. You won't have to rush to the public water. Instead, you can take your time and fish the waters you choose to fish and catch the fish that others only dream about.



It's time to raise the fly casting bar with fly line control and we're here to help you. Give us a toll-free call at 866-672-1959 and we'll put a date on your calendar that you'll never regret.

How to Fly Cast: Goal 4 – Saltwater Fly Casting



Casting quickly and accurately in the challenging winds of the saltwater flats is the key to success





Education

• Quick Cast

• Fly Casting in the Wind

• Stripping fly line and the strip strike

Equipment

• Confirming your fly equipment is balanced

• Floating and Sinking Fly Lines

• Demonstrating balanced, efficient Leland equipment

Experience

• Cast quickly and accurately

• Fly Cast in the Wins

• Catch fish others cannot



If fly fishing the saltwater flats is on your list, you should know this ain’t your granddaddy's style of fly fishing. Sure, the overall game is the same... to subtly land your fly in front of a cruising bonefish, permit or tarpon...but that's pretty much where the similarities end.



The saltwater environment is constantly in flux. Ever-changing tides, weather and seasons dictate your angling options...and the wind, it's brutal. To arrive prepared for an exceptional experience, it's imperative you up your fly casting game, and that's where we at Leland come in.



Sure, we've got years of saltwater flats fishing experience, but more importantly we've got almost thirty years of fly casting instruction under our belts. This fly casting saddle time means we've worked hard on honing in on what's important when it comes to efficiently fly casting in the wind, and we'll share this knowledge with you, here at our ranch.



We'll give you the necessary fly casting principles that convert to the most efficient loop shapes that easily penetrate the harshest of winds. While other anglers will stay in the lodge to sip fancy drinks adorned with umbrellas, you'll be out in the gusty winds casting and catching with confidence.



We'll also show you a trick or two that will further prepare you for fast, accurate casts and controlled follow-up casts. You'll be ready to land your fly to that spooky bonefish, permit or tarpon at just about any angle and distance. Believe us, your guide will be impressed with your fly casting abilities and so will your angling buddies. Oh, and when your guide knows you can fly cast well, you'll end up in even cooler angling locations, that other sports simply cannot fish.



Let's get you ready for an amazing saltwater fly fishing experience. Let's get you up to the Leland Ranch in Sonoma for some thoughtful fly casting principles that will change your saltwater angling experiences forever. Just give us a toll-free call at 866-672-1959 and start the journey.

You'll no longer just catch fish on fly fishing tackle. Instead, you'll earn your fish by leveraging your casting principles to create a more than likely outcome...a fish you chose to catch. This subtle, but important difference will add immeasurable enjoyment to the sport you already love.



Fly fishing equipment will no longer just be a casual choice for you. It will become a confident solution to your fishing experience, as you'll understand the principles and physics behind an efficient and balanced fly fishing outfit, suited to your fly fishing desires.



Most importantly, you'll become a fly casting ambassador to this great sport. Your casting skills will be noticed by others. Questions will be asked. Should you choose, you'll have the ability to change other fly anglers' experiences.



Think about it, what other outdoor sport could you master in only ten hours of instruction and a bit of practice? If fly fishing is in your blood, we at Leland are here for you. If you give us your trust, focused attention and limited time, we promise you won't be disappointed. Give us a toll-free call at 866-672-1959 and we'll put a date on the calendar that will change your fly fishing life.

How to Fly Cast: Goal 3 – Efficient Distance Casting



Adding distance to any cast can increase your enjoyment of the sport...and earn you more fish!





Education

• Efficient, Controlled Distance

• Shooting Line from Water

• Shooting Line from Air

Equipment

• Confirming your fly equipment is balanced

• Balancing your fly equipment, if possible

• Demonstrating balanced, efficient Leland equipment

Experience

• Fly cast where others cannot

• Fish your fly where others cannot

• Catch fish others cannot



When fly casters think about distance, far too often the focus is solely on the longest fly cast possible. To us at Leland, this is missing the point. Controlled distance is the real goal. With it, you can put your fly accurately where you want it, whether close, medium and of course, far.



To reach out further with your fly cast, power is not the only consideration. Instead, efficiency and a well-formed loop are the necessary building blocks. Only when a loop of fly line is properly formed will it travel through the air with as little resistance as possible creating fly casts beyond forty feet.



If you've visited us for our fly casting goals, 1 and 2, you're now ready for Goal 3. Leveraging our proven fly casting principles, we'll show you how to efficiently form a smooth fly line loop. We'll prove to you that you can cast in the wind and we'll provide you with the necessary skill set to reach out further with your fly cast than you ever thought possible,while still remaining accurate.



With these casting skills wind will become far less relevant to your day on the water. You'll be able to access water that other anglers cannot touch and catch the fish that most fly casters only dream about. Beyond increasing your fish count, you'll add further enjoyment to this great sport. You'll celebrate each cast and catch.



If you're ready to continue your fly fishing journey by upping your fly casting game. Give us a toll-free call at 866-672-1959. We'll get a date on your calendar for a visit to the Leland Ranch where we'll add controlled distance to your fly cast and value to your fly fishing experience.
