One of the best facilities of its kind is the Golden Gate Angling and Casting Club, located in the heart of beautiful Golden Gate Park in San Francisco. The Club has members from across the country and around the globe, including many of the top ranked casters in the world. The Club hosts national and international casting tournaments as well as sponsors regularly scheduled local and regional tournaments. Members are offered classes and seminars in fly and plug casting from beginner through expert levels. The annual two-day fly casting seminar, directed by master instructor and club member Mel Krieger, is an enormously popular event, and free to the public.
The GGACC's facilities include the Angler's Lodge & Casting Pools located within Golden Gate Park in San Francisco. The entrance to these facilities is on John F. Kennedy Drive in the western end of the park (see map below). Look for the "Angler's Lodge" sign located across from the Buffalo Paddock.
