Casting Instructors

I would like to congratulate the newest casting instructor in the UK.

I heard today that Gordon Armstrong has successfully qualified as a S&TA Level 2 Salmon and Trout casting instuctor today after a 10 week training course.

Well done to you Gordon,what a great week you have had,it must have been very difficult adapting to the training and educational side of the fishing,whilst bombing out 60+ yard casts at the Gamefair

I wish you every success in the future,as Im sure you will need the patience of a Saint when your Students are wrapping fly lines round your neck
Stick my name down for a lesson and you can give me some tips,Not the kind of tips you gave me at the CLA either like dont smoke in bed,or dont eat yellow snow.

Well done

James Chalmers

Thanks lads

After 5 months of a weekend each month I finally completed the level two coaching course in both trout and salmon instruction.

I must admit, although the course took a long time and was very compact, it was well worth it and opened my eyes from a coaching point of view. It covered all aspects; from having a sound technical ability to child protection and health and safety.

A well worthy course!!

It is not because thing are difficult that we dare not venture.
It is because we dare not venture they are difficult. :wink:
