I'd see if you have any casting clubs in your area and get out and meet people. I've been at it a while, but I was taught just about everything I know about casting, for free, by folks at a local casting pond/club. I've yet to meet a fly fisherman that wasn't willing to help.
Another bit of advice- don't be intimidated by high priced rods & gear and the "highly refined art" aura that often surrounds fly fishing. It's not that hard to keep it cheap and simple....
....that is, until you're addicted.
Good luck, PM me or post here- I'm happy to answer any questions I can.
