It is with great pride and full awareness of my own self-worthiness
that I announce a new feature here on FAOL. Namely, the introduction
of a new rank of 'Fly-Casting Instructor.' It is the status of;
By James Castwell
DOCTOR OF FLY-CASTING INSTRUCTION
Now, there are, and have been, a few others offering fly-casting
instruction but, they are new-comers and just can't toe the mark
like we can here at good 'ol F.A.O.L. The instructive course is
intense, and notwithstanding the lacerations from the instructor,
a highly rewarding goal for all those eagerly awaiting it's
The cost is minimal, paltry in my humble opinion even, for such
a great (actually fantastic comes closer) education. Not only
will the students learn how to cast as well as that great
'Fly-Casting Champion' himself, 'James Castwell,' but they will
learn the intricacies (all the little fine points) of all of his
'proprietary' teaching 'secrets' too!
He will distill his 55 world-renown years (he didn't start until
he was 12) of fly casting and teaching wisdom into a grueling,
excruciating and concise one hour of beatings, yelling and screaming
instruction. For a mere $500 bucks (cash, no checks) plus one measly
buck a week for the remainder of the years you use his fly-fishing
methods, you too can be an 'Expert!' A DOCTOR OF FLY-CASTING TEACHING.
Be the first in your club to show off the snappy arm patch, decoder
ring and emergency whistle. Join today.
But wait! If you send in your deposit while you are reading this
there is even more! Yes, you too can quickly and (somewhat)
painlessly become a "FLY-CASTING DOCTOR OF TEACHING" for only
fifty percent of the full tuition (cash, no checks) into today's
mail you will receive a autographed portrait of, "CASTWELL,
THE GREAT' performing his famous, 'Tear-yer-jock' triple haul.
A thing of beauty for all to behold, Hurry, don't wait! Let
the great J CASTWELL, turn your crummy, ineffective rod-wavings
into a thing of which to marvel. Become a "DOCTOR OF TEACHING
FLYCASTER!" Do it today!
(If time, financial constraints and just a modicum of decent
common sense do not allow for this 'Super' instruction, please
take your favorite fly rod out to your favorite stream and
learn like the rest of us did; for God's sake, it's only
fly-fishing! And learning is at least half of the fun,
perhaps even more.) ~ JC
