Reviews for Learn to Fly-Cast in a Weekend.
I've finished Learn to Flycast in a Weekend and I have to say this book is a must have for every fly fisherman whether you think you're casting is perfect or not. It will help you get rid of all of those bad habits and teach you a new way to better your casts, timing and eventually distance accuracy. if you are a new caster this book is for you. You can have the technique down in four sessions and believe me when I tell you, you won't need any lessons afterwards. A true find and as I said a must have. Werner Moller *****

Once Tim gave me his book my casting was poor and in great need of improvement. Since I started to seriously work the exercises in his book my casting gets better and better. The great thing about this book is, that I feel improvement with each step I take. The book immediately shows me where my difficulties are and I am able to correct them in a short time. Which is usually the trouble with self teaching books, that they don't. So this book definitely makes my casting better and so I recommend it to anyone who wants to be a better caster, beginner or intermediate...Stefan Schmid Germany.

So I took up Tim's challenge to teach a non-caster using his book and not my own ideas :). The experiment started with me reading the book and then putting my 12 year old through the exercises using a 2/3wt setup. After 30 minutes he had the basics down and after 2 hours the whip cracking sounds during his casting had disappeared. We are now up to Exercise 10 and my wife has decided to attempt to learn as well. (and she doesn't even like the great outdoors:) The only downside is that I now have to buy more Fly fishing equipment that I haven't budgeted for. Admittedly, it took longer than a weekend as the attention span of children has to be allowed for.

I wish this book had been around 10 years ago when I started teaching myself to cast. It would have saved me months of frustration. Great work Tim. -Garnet Prince
