The primary casting style will be on the ground. This is the basis for ALL surf casting styles and you must be proficient before progressing to swinging the lead.

The student progress will determine our areas of concentration. Some people may want to stick with ground casting while other may want to try swinging the lead. We are prepared to handle both types of students. At the start of each day, students will help shape the actual schedule for that day. Once you understand the technology of long range fishing and casting you will continue to improve for the rest of your life. This is a rare opportunity to receive direct long range fishing and casting instruction of three times World Champion Neil MacKellow (Blackbeard). Neil has coached over 4000 students around the World.


I hope to see you there.
