When I am home in the U.S.A. I spend as much time teaching.
I love teaching, especially with kids.

Each year FCFF is asked to teach a casting class for the Great Bay TU and Amy's Treat event.

I am a lucky man to be able to teach so many people, from all over the world.

Youth-Family Lessons = Mom, Dad, Grandma, and Kids.
We have hundreds and hundreds of hours working with children and women.
The end of a E.I. Fly 1X class, but the beginning of a new chapter in their lives. 

We use a variety of teaching tools.
We stress the basics and teach you what to buy and what to stay away from.
On vacation in NH?  These folks from Ohio had a 2-3 hour casting course, a lunch break, and then a 3 hour lesson on the water.  The ladies caught most of the fish!
Our classes are designed to take things one step at time.  E.I. Fly 1X casting class on land, and then...

We hit the water for more lessons and lots of fun.  
It's not all about catching fish = father and son creating a new family hobby.
E.I. Fly 1X beginner casting class = tends to bring out the best in people.

Just Amazing to watch

FCFF loves river fishing, but to leave Patagonia without a day on an Andean lake is a big mistake.  Largest lake bow last year was 29"

FCFF knows all the wading spots on the upper Chimehuin River.  Patagonia, Argentina

When these bloom, the hills look as though they are on fire!  

The locals hate them, but FCFF loves them.  Perca is a native Patagonian fish...and they can get up to 10-15lbs. 

FCFF friend from Chile.  He body was destroyed after 4 days of fishing, but his will kept him going
