2. Why E.I. Fly Fishing System™

FCFF Teaching Model:


➤ We believe fly fishing is an intellectual, physical, and emotional activity.  We have developed a series of instructional fly fishing/casting programs based on the principles of EQ -- Emotional Intelligence. We call it the E.I. Fly Fishing System™
➤ Steady progressive learning is achieved by offering sequential classes, ranging from beginner to advance (i.e., 1X, 2X, 3X, 4X classes).
➤ Comprehension is achieved by offering the lowest student to instructor ratio -- we never teach more than four students per class.  Lastly, we utilize innovative instructional techniques that target brain-body cognition and bio-mechanics.
