Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Experience Our family of four had a great time learning to shoot clays. Darren did a great job giving clear and concise instructions to get us on track. We'd definitely recommend this to anyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic experience learning to fly fish We were visiting the Biltmore and my wife signed me up for a fly fishing class as a surprise. (Quid pro quo for doing the tour, I guess). I spent a couple of hours with Dustin who was a very experienced guide and a really great instructor. I went from never casting a fly rod to catching a nice fish in a very short time. Y'all gotta try this!
