Recently, volunteers from the Charlotte, Winston-Salem, Asheville, Fayetteville, and Greenville programs met at the Pechmann Fishing Education Center in Fayetteville to receive training in instructing Fly-casting. In all, 15 volunteers participated in the training conducted by the Pechmann Center’s staff and volunteers adapted from lessons learned at the Wulff School of Fly Fishing. The training was conducted over the course of a weekend and included instruction in teaching the roll cast, basic cast, false casting, changing planes and direction, and shooting line. Volunteers also learned about using the hands-on teaching method and using casting forms to help visualize the casting stroke.
We are grateful for such a wonderful group of dedicated volunteers committed to developing their own skills in the endeavor of greater service to our disabled service members and veterans.
