Fly Casting Instruction with George V. Roberts


Fly casting is a physical skill that is built incrementally over time. To become an accomplished fly caster requires two things: knowledgeable instruction and regular practice. I’m convinced that anyone can become an exceptional fly caster if he or she receives proper instruction and is willing to put in the work.

I’ve been teaching fly casting for more than 25 years. Among my most accomplished students is Sheila Hassan, who is the Director of the Wulff School of Fly Fishing and has authored two books on fly casting.

Private Instruction

My schedule is such that I’m available to work with only a few private students per season. I no longer instruct beginners or those who’ve had no previous formal fly casting instruction. I choose to work only with experienced fly casters who are familiar with my work, can commit to at least four lessons per season, and are willing to put in the regular practice necessary to take their casting to the next level.

If you’re a beginner, if you’ve had no previous formal instruction, or if you’re looking only for a lesson or two, I’ll refer you to one of my advanced students, who will cover the same material as I would.


I’m available, on a limited basis, to conduct casting clinics and seminars (including seminars on video analysis) for your group, club, shop, business, etc. Please take a look at my Events page to find a listing of upcoming public seminars.


Private Instruction for 1 student (2 hours, includes video analysis): $350

Private Instruction for 2 Students (2 hours, includes video analysis for each student): $500

Half Day of Instruction (4 hours, up to 6 students): $900

Full Day of Instruction (8 hours, up to 6 students): $1,500

For groups larger than 6, I’ll provide another instructor, for which there will be an additional charge.

Because of the time involved, video analysis for groups larger than 2 students will incur a charge of $100 per additional student.

These prices reflect instruction done around Massachusetts’ South Shore. Locations requiring significant travel will incur additional expenses.

Video Analysis and Remote Coaching

Due to time constraints, I’m no longer taking on new students for remote coaching/video analysis. However, I’m still available, on a limited basis, to conduct seminars on video fly casting analysis. To read my blog post on using video analysis to improve your casting, click here.
