Castapalooza 2015

For the Ohio, Pennsylvania and other great lakes area folks, this event is great. Good seminars on casting and fishing two handers and some tying, along with some great casters willing to help you get your casting dialed in. I highly recommend it, it's great fun and extremely helpful.

Agree. It's a great time and some extremely knowledgeable and talented local anglers are always on hand. Casting, rigging demos along with talks on steelhead tactics for local waters. Jeff Liskay will be doing a seminar which is probably worth the trip in itself. The guy is as fishy as they come. Also great opportunity to have a professional help get your new set up dialed in with the right spey or skagit line.

A special thanks to Jerry Darkes for putting this together and to Jeff Liskay for the river time on Sunday. Looking forward to 2016.

Great time, wished my wife and I could have stayed longer. Really cool hanging out with a couple of guys throwing singlehands about 130 ft. Learned a lot as always. Nice of Jerry Darkes to put this on.

Woodlander, if you are on Facebook, there is a castapalooza group, I think several people shared some pictures on there
