The Instructor 6 is one of our top-sellers! As a teaching tool it is superb; a joy to cast, has great feel and can be handled comfortably by all skill levels – this is important when teaching, I’m sure you’ll agree!
What I’ve noticed over the years is how much longer your student’s attention span becomes. Instead of struggling to see a rod which is difficult to see, everything becomes big, obvious and there, right in front of their eyes.
Using a matt dark grey carbon rod, while excellent for stealth, is the equivalent of trying to teach loop control with a clear, green or blue fly line! Hot Orange is what you want for line visibility.
So if you have any fly casting instruction to do, then this is the rod you want. We can and have produced Instructor versions in 4, 8 and 10WTS. These are special orders and can add around a month to build-time. We’ve also made them in yellow and hot orange!
I believe that as instructors we really owe it to our students to give them the absolute best display of casting that we can. Never use a rod they can’t see! Instead join hundreds of other instructors and use this rod to enhance your teaching.
This particularly rod is off to join an instructor at the Golden Gate Casting Club in San Francisco. Some day I hope to visit this hallowed ground!
You can read more about this rod here. If you live in a warm climate then here is the best line for the job. And finally if you want to see the rod in action, then check out our Fly Casting Masterclass!
Remember every rod comes with a free casting lesson – you just have to track me down in order to get it! 🙂
