The golden gate casting pools are a hidden gem in the park located on the other side of JFK from the Buffalo Paddock. Here you can practice your fly casting basics or pick up new forms casting (i.e. spey or double haul). The Golden Gate Angling and Casting Club has a clubhouse at the pond where several members are usually out perfecting their casting technique or picking up new tricks of the trade. Most of these folks pretty friendly, so feel free to ask for advice.
- Fly Rod & Reel (If you don't have a fly rod, check out the club's site for introduction to casting events)

Love this place. A hidden treasure.
Jack Heifferon and Dave Drake, it'd be awesome to do this together next time you're in town. Always been high on my list.
Plenty of space to learn and practice fly casting in a beautiful and easy access location. Plenty of club members to give suggestions or teach. Public facility. A great place to chill out while physically practicing a skill.. Can be Zen like.
