John Waters Casting Clinic

June 8th, 2011

Over the weekend 4 and 5 June well known Australian multiple fly casting champion John Waters, in conjunction with Great Bay Rods held a two day casting clinic on the Gold Coast. The event was co-ordinated by South East Queensland Flyfishers Club under the supervision of special events co-ordinator Tom Boylan.
The Saturday sessions, held at Albert Park, comprised two group sessions, one in the morning and the other in the afternoon. Both were well attended and all participants reported how much they had learned from John.
Sunday comprised an open day at Colleges Rugby Club. John was assisted by Certified Casting Instructors Paul Goodey, Shaun Ash and Jon Burgess in his individual assistance to members of the public and club members.
The improvement of the casting of many present was clearly noticable over the period of the weekend, and it is pleasing to add that several members are still seen conscientiously applying the lessons learnt from John.
