Keep Raising The Bar

Being a lifelong learner, I’m of the belief that wherever you’re at, there is always room for improvement. Leading up to our 35th long-term course this spring, I’ve been seeking out additional training in order to become a better instructor. It’s been an immensely enjoyable experience.

In early March I spent a weekend at Amherst Archery Academy becoming a level 1 and 2 archery instructor. I really enjoyed the class and recommend their programs.

On the last day in March I spent four hours becoming a better fly casting instructor with Mark Foley, a Federation of Fly Fishers certified casting instructor. Mark helped me break down the process and as a result I’ll be better able to instruct on the river.

Mark and I played hockey together when we were little kids. It was great to spend the day with someone with whom I share so much history. He teaches and guides through his company First Cast Fly Fishing, based out of Dover, NH. He also shares great stories on his blog, like this one about catching his first fish. If you’re looking to become a more skilled fly fisher or caster, definitely get in touch with him.

Wherever you’re at, keep raising the bar. Never stop working to get better.
