Local kid, he asked to learn so I spent an hour or showing him the basics. He picked up on things quick.  Real quick. 
Cast his first fly rid and caught his first trout. 
 

Now if you can teach him how to tackle or get to the QB, they might not suck so much :whistle:

But, hey, the Gamecock women's basketball team is good.

An hour is quick.  It took me the better part of a day to get a serviceable cast down. Good instruction helps for sure but some take to the cast more quickly than others.

It was evident he was used to a coach saying, drop and give me 100 push-ups. 
I only had to correct him once or twice on poor form.

Interesting take.  My son who had considerable coaching as a baseball player learned quickly too.  He got it down in one fishing trip, 2 hours or so on the water.  The second fishing trip a month or two later he learned how to double haul.
