The Wading List - Characters

Christopher Rownes is one of the most renown fly casting instructors across Europe. But he has a second life - he is a master of contemporary dance. We met him in Basel, Switzerland, to talk about how fly fishing and dancing are intertwined.

 


Passion for Movement

When passion leads through life, everything can change and yet remain connected in a set of parallels. It won’t be the passion that changes but only the appearance of that passion.
If there is one thing that didn’t change in the life of Christopher Rownes, it’s his fascination for the endless possibilities of the human body. Trained as a classical ballet dancer, he evolved into an established choreographer for contemporary dance, in fly casting Christopher found his way to keep evolving these movements. He teaches a very natural and individual casting style, without specific restrictions, with a focus on timing and feeling.
