Hi all, Very new to fly fishing and can't seem to get the hang of casting right yet.
Anyone able to give me some pointers?
Cheers Richard

Hi there Richard. Im sure a local guide could help you out, but your best option would be to join a club.

My local club runs a flyfishing course early on in the season which teaches everything you need to know, including casting.

Id contact the Rotorua Anglers Association and talk to them.

Richard, if you have a few dollars to spare you may want to get in touch with Harvey Clark. He'll see you right - very good rates.

Otherwise Rotorua Anglers is a very active club.

Definitely look at a club but also highly recommend spending an hour or two on YouTube to get a grasp of the basics, practising them while filming yourself on your phone to see how close you’re getting, going back on YouTube etc. rinse and repeat. http://www.sexyloops.com/flycast/introduction/ Is also a good watch if you go through all the videos.
