Thumbs up Spring Fling Casting Instruction

Not only will International Federation of Fly Fishers (IFFF) Certified Master Casting Instructor Ed Chamberlain be at the Tailwater TU meeting on the 17th at the hatchery (since he's a TU member), Ed is also coming out to the Spring Fling on the 14th to help with casting and will even do a demo of some sort if there is interest. Off the top of his head, Ed suggested any of three topics: "Essentials of Casting"; "Casting in Wind"; or "Advanced Techniques". Considering I think he has been at least indirectly responsible for giving some folks a really bad day in his service in the Army as a Colonel with Army Airborne and the Rangers, Ed is a very easy going and down to earth fellow.

Here's Ed's blurb from Atlanta Fly Fishing School where he was/is an instructor.

"Ed Chamberlain is a International Federation of Fly Fishers (IFFF) Certified Master Casting Instructor and a retired career Army officer who served primarily with Airborne and Ranger units. Ed has taught and presented at numerous shows and fly fishing venues. Ed is an experienced fisherman who has fished throughout the Continental United States, Alaska, the Bahamas, and Patagonia. He enjoys all types of fishing from chasing Steelhead and trout, salt water species in his flats skiff, pursuing big Bluegills in the pond behind the house with the Grandkids, or paddling his kayak in the coastal salt marshes or along rivers and lakes. Ed is actively involved with casting instructor training, testing, and certification for the IFFF.

Okay. I'm now removing my name from all the volunteer lists and planning on spending the day with Col. Chamberlain! (Well, not really, but I truly want to.)

This is definitely an opportunity of a lifetime! My casting is decent, but there's always room for improvement. Thanks for bringing Col. Chamberlain into the fold!
If you have difficulty understanding the post above, read it out loud and it should make sense. This NGTO member is known for his poor hill-billy upbringing and his affinity for all things from Louisiana (particularly if it relates to LSU). It makes for a poor mix of accents and much difficulty in translation. He was doing well for so long, but now seems to have regressed.
