"As a teacher I want my knowledge to become your knowledge, to be a part of your confidence when you fish. I wish I could be with you to see your eyes light up as you bring a fish to your fly by performing a casting technique you once thought beyond your reach. Throughout the learning experience you will have your share of good casts and bad, some that are better than expected, other will make you wonder if you'll ever get it right. And there will be some casts that are absolutely perfect!" - Joan Wulff
