Good Loops Fly Casting Instruction- Another local FFF Certified Casting Instructor and board member of the Texas Fly Fishers club

Coach Kimmie - Formula Fitness Athletic Club - A personal trainer may be an odd referral on a fly fishing website. However, excellent physical fitness will make you a better fly caster and reduces the number physical injuries that can take place on the river. If you have balance problems in the river, you probably don't have the right physical development. Going to the gym and using the equipment improperly. For the seriouse fly fisherman and fly caster, Kimmie is by far the best that you can find in Houston and well worth the price.
