Fly Fishing Chris Hague

Gordy Hill

IFFF, CBOG Emeritus


I’ve been teaching fly-casting and fly fishing for many years.  As a member of the International Federation of Fly Fishers, it was a pleasure for me to host, as lead examiner, Chris Hague’s examinations to become a Master Certified Instructor. Chris performed flawlessly, every task on his casting performance exam, even to the extent that he was able to perform extra tasks I added to confirm his exceptional competence. When we administered his extensive oral examination which covered advanced casting mechanics, fly tackle, teaching knowledge, ethics and many other aspects of our fly-fishing World, we were impressed with his unusually complete knowledge. We are fortunate to have Chris as a member of our sport community!

Casting
Chris’s repertoire in double-handed casting techniques is complete to the standard which befits any mentor/teacher in my opinion and I would not hesitate in recommending  him to any person with a desire to learn to fly-cast.
Tuition
Chris’s teaching style is very accurate and to the point, but at the same time he has a laid back approach which puts learners at ease which I think is an advantage to someone wishing to learn. His demonstrations are always concise and slick, many times I have heard clients envious  comments. Chris is always open to discussions with a class if anyone asks a question.
Personal Development
Chris has allowed me to stand in on many of his lessons, both group and one-to-one sessions, which have been a major benefit to myself, both with the casting side and with the lesson delivery, and it is my hope that I can emulate Chris’s skills sometime in the future.
Simon was mentored by Chris and has now gained his Game Angling Instructors certificate.
