Orvis Fly Fishing School

Available April 14th through October 14th

If learning to fly fish or improving your casting technique seems like a daunting task, you just haven’t met the right instructors. Pick up a fly rod at the Orvis Manchester Fly Fishing School – situated in the heart of Vermont’s Green Mountains – and you’ll be casting like a seasoned angler in just two short days of classes. The expert instructors at Orvis will help you with setting up the rod, fly selection and knots and safely releasing your catch. Classes are held in the brand-new Orvis schoolhouse directly across from the Orvis Flagship Store, on the fully-stocked casting ponds, and out on the famed Battenkill River. Our courses include

A straightforward intro to freshwater entomology and fly selection
A concise presentation on requisite tackle and its function
Instruction for mastering the essential fly-fishing knots
Three separate casting clinics to master the Orvis Progressive Casting Method
