John Hogg’s Caster’s Corner

GBF provides members with monthly small-group casting clinics the 3rd Saturday of the month at Sierra Meadows Park in Rocklin. Watch for member emails one to two weeks before the date for details. These clinics, conducted by certified casting instructors, are free to club members and first come-first served, so an early response is suggested to procure your spot, as attendance is limited. All skill levels from starter to advanced are welcomed with club loaner rods available.  For more details on these clinics, please click here.
