When I discovered the Hudl Technique app, I was convinced it was going to revolutionize fly casting instruction. I’m sorry to say that it has not. In fact, I’m the only fly casting instructor who’s written about video fly casting analysis in any of the major fly fishing magazines (see Tail Fly Fishing Magazine #27, January/February 2017). I can only speculate as to why this is. If I had to guess, I’d say that providing the student with video analysis takes more time, more work. But I’ve always tried to offer my students the highest level of service–and I should think all fly casting instructors would do the same.
For the past three seasons I’ve included video analysis using the Hudl Technique app as part of my fly casting instruction. My students have found it very beneficial to receive a permanent review created from their lesson, which they can then use to direct their practice sessions until we next meet. If your fly casting instructor is not providing you with feedback in the form of video analysis, you need to ask him or her, “Why not…?”
Because of schedule constraints, I’m not taking on any new students for private instruction or remote coaching/video analysis. However, I’m still available, on a very limited basis, to conduct seminars (including seminars on video fly casting analysis) for your group, club, shop, or business.

To help get you up and running quickly using Hudl Technique to analyze your fly cast, I’ve put together a free ebook-in-the-form-of-a-blog-post. If you’re a student of fly casting, you’ll find this post valuable even if your casting instructor knows nothing about the technology. You can read the post by clicking here.
