NOLS Wilderness Course
NOLS Wilderness CourseThis mix of mountain expedition skills, leadership, and fly fishing
is any angler's dream.

Orvis guides will teach you the fly-fishing skills you need to be an acccomplished angler while your NOLS instructors turn you into an outdoor living expert. After an intensive three-day fly-fishing seminar to help you perfect your cast, learn to "match the hatch," and read the water, you'll shoulder your pack and head into the Wind River Mountains for a 21-day wilderness backpacking and fishing expedition where cutthroat, brook, brown, golden, and rainbow trout abound. Your course will end on a world-renowned trout-fishing river with an Orvis-Endorsed guide for five days of personal instruction in drift boat handling, rowing techniques, and big water fishing. By the end of this month-long course you will be a highly-qualified member of any wilderness fly-fishing expedition.
