NOLS: Orvis Wilderness Fly Fishing
This is the ultimate fly-fishing experience! If you are looking for a course that provides all the skills you need to travel in the mountains, fish the backcountry, and row a drift boat, this is the one for you. You will start in town with a three-day Orvis freshwater fly fishing school. After this, you will head into the Wind River Range for a 20-day backcountry expedition. The Wind River Range is a world destination for fly-fishing. You will learn to fish the high country for Rainbow, Brook and Cutthroat Trout. You may even have the opportunity to catch a Golden Trout. In addition, you will learn how to camp, travel, and lead your peers in a remote wilderness setting. The final five days of this course will be spent learning how to wade-fish and row a drift boat on one of the best trout rivers in the West.
Orvis Wilderness Fly Fishing: June 16-July 15, June 30-July 29; $6,500.
