Best investment in the sport -
By: pace1958 from Jackson NJ
I haven't held a fly rod for about thirty years, so I decided to take this class to refresh my memory and to learn the proper way to cast before I developed any bad habits. The class was well worth it. The instructors were knowledgable, friendly and very willing to give expert tips on casting and fishing. I highly recommend this class to anyone interested in fly casting. It will reduce the frustration of trying to learn the information on your own... And it was a fun day out.
Great experience -
By: Art5 from Manchester VT
I attended with a friend who is new to fly fishing. This was a refresher for me after a previous Orvis school and about 15 years of the sport. Great idea. The instructors did a wonderful job of tailoring the experience to our individual needs. Great school.
