4 ideas:

1. Hire a guide near you for a half day trip. I have employed a guide many times and I have always learned a lot. Tell he or she up front you are a newbie and they will adjust.

2. Get a casting lesson at your local fly shop. Prob cheaper than the 1st idea.

3. Go to a local TU meeting and dont be shy about asking for a little casting help. I think you will find a small and helpful group, at least that has been my experience. Here is a link http://www.tu.org/connect/chapter-se...&commit=Search

4. Try golf (only kidding )
