Linecasters Advanced Academy ...

Next Linecasters advanced academy held in Rhodes - 15, 16 and 17 October 2014

The ADVANCED ACADEMY is based in RHODES and has specifically been established to assist advanced fly fishermen in the finer aspects of the sport.  Attention is placed on specific casting techniques, line control, entomology and fly selection.  Participants will spend more time on-stream receiving practical tutoring on UPSTREAM DRY FLY FISHING and NYMPHING.   This course is well suited for up and coming guides as well as fly fishermen requiring advanced information before venturing to exotic destinations such as Argentina, New Zealand and European fly fishing waters.

Course contents

The Advanced Academy is designed to blend the practical and theoretical aspects of the course enabling participants to take what they’ve learnt on the ‘blackboard’ and apply it on-stream.

Accommodation and Meals
