Allthough I teach all levels of fly casters from the beginner to the pro what I really like most is to teach the very advanced single hand fly casters who have travelled from course to course and often tell me that they are frustrated because they obviously could not have have been taught in a way that made progress possible. I want them leave my classes with a smile and return happily.

This probably highest standard of teaching you can get world-wide, based on my ability to analyse, recognize and remove existing casting errors within the shortest time possible, is not a guarantee but the best possible basis for passing world's toughest and most sought after fly casting instructor exam and finally become a Certified EFFA Fly Casting Instructor. That's why my clients come from all over the world and sometimes drive or fly long distances to be able to take the chance to participate in one of these courses.

The fly fishers listed below have participated in at least one of my Flycasting Instructor Preparation Courses of the UFC Fly Fishing School or have at least got the final "polish" before attending the exam. Meanwhile they are EFFA instructors(former FFF-Europe instructors - not to mix up with the much easier IFFF), some of them are even EFFA Master Instructors now.

Among all those whom I prepared for the EFFA certification, there were also a few who later decided to go the easier way and do the IFFF (former FFF) certification. Allthough it sounds good to call oneself a master it is the level the test was based on that makes the difference. The EFFA level is considerably higher than the US programme as things like e.g. drift boat fishing do not exist here and the fly fisher has to handle situations at the river without the help of a boat. There are very good casters in the US but generally speaking the European fly casting level is much higher. That is why the EFFA programme was developed. It matches our needs here. Well, however I also want to refer to those who chose the lower IFFF level. Honestly speakting I was a bit dissapointed that they did not back the European fly casting traditions by chosing the European programme.
