By way of a short introduction, I would like to let you know that my name is Doug Swift.  I am a member of the Federation of Fly Fishers and have been certified as a fly casting instructor through their comprehensive and internationally recognized fly casting program.  I have been teaching and promoting good fly casting techniques for the past 12 years in that capacity.  

The value of knowing how to perform and present a good cast cannot be underestimated in the fly fishing world.  “Good casting is the prelude to successful  fly fishing.”  It took a long time for me, as a budding fly fisher 25 years ago to realize that those words are so true.  That realization resulted in a journey to be a better caster and subsequently to being a fly casting instructor. 

So, if you are a beginner just getting into fly fishing, or an experience fly fisher who wants to take their casting to the next level, give me a call and see what I have to offer.
