The Oakland Casting Club

Fly Casting Lessons


Thank you for visiting our site! If you want to cast farther, if you want to form tighter loops, The Oakland Casting Club can help you.

The Oakland Casting Club also organizes fly fishing trips. With your newfound casting skills, a balanced rod, reel, and line, combined with the knowledge from our Fish Masters, we will help you to catch fish and to create memories that you will recall fondly for the rest of your life.

Most importantly, you will meet other people who also enjoy fly casting and fly fishing. This common passion is the foundation of lifelong friendships that are continually being formed and strengthened amongst our members of The Oakland Casting Club.
