You'll cover it all at the Orvis South Carolina Fly Fishing School:
Tuition includes comprehensive instruction, lunches, and use of Orvis fly tackle.
Note: Because of the heavier tackle used at the Orvis South Carolina Fly Fishing School, we strongly recommend that students be at least 12 years old.
