Mathias Lilleheim

Mathias is a former javelin thrower and international javelin coach, now working for the Norwegian Olympic Training Centre in Oslo. The biomechanics of fly casting isn’t that different from that of javelin throwing and the pedagogical aspects of elite sports works for fly casters as well. Mathias has developed a concept for fly casting clinics based on principles from his “real job”. This concept is used by the Norwegian Fishing and Hunting Assocoation to educate and authorize fly casting instructors and Mathias is responsible for both educating and authorizing them. He has also written a book, presenting the concept to everybody from beginners to advanced fly casters.

In 1985, Mathias became national head coach in Casting and he still is. Lately, though, he has spent more time on competitions with fly fishing equipment and is currently among the best casters in the world. In the last World Championships in fly casting (Ireland-2006) he went home with two silver medals. He has several Norwegian Championship gold medals and Norwegian records. He competes with both single and double hand rods and with overhead and spey casting techniques.

During the last few years he has been travelling around the world, doing demos and clinics, presenting his 5 principles for fly casting and creating images that makes different fly casting techniques easier to understand and master.
