Orvis Fly-Fishing Instruction and Schools

The Orvis Shooting Grounds at Pursell Farms features a comprehensive fly-fishing school program based on the highly successful lesson format developed and refined over fifty years at our Vermont headquarters.

Expert Orvis fishing instructors will teach you multiple fly casting techniques, the essential fishing knots, equipment basics, and how to choose the right flies. This school will primarily focus on warmwater species such as bass and sunfish, but the casting you learn in the school can be utilized in any other fly-fishing scenario.

At the conclusion of the program you will be able to fly cast with authority and fish confidently. The fly fishing school tuition includes instruction, lunches, textbook, and use of Orvis tackle.
