After plenty of training and studying, Tex Moore and I passed our Federation of Fly Fishers (FFF) Casting Instructor Certification test(s) this past weekend. We were in Lake Charles, LA at the Gulf Coast FFF Conclave, and completed the written and practical (always the most difficult) parts of the test on Saturday, between the crazy thunderstorms. Thanks to everyone who helped along the way, especially Al Crise of Hawk Ridge Fly Fishing School – our mentor through this whole endeavor!
