This mix of mountain expedition skills, leadership, and fly-fishing is any angler’s dream. Orvis™ guides will teach you the fly-fishing skills you need to be an ace on the water while your NOLS instructors turn you into an outdoor living expert.
After an intensive three-day fly-fishing seminar to help you perfect your cast, learn to “match the hatch,” and read the water, you’ll shoulder your pack and head into the Wind River Mountains for a 21-day wilderness backpacking and fishing expedition where cutthroat, brook, brown, golden, and rainbow trout abound.
Your course will end on a world-renowned trout-fishing river with an Orvis-certified guide for five days of personal instruction in drift boat handling, rowing techniques, and big water fishing.
By the end of this month-long course you will be a high functioning member of any fly-fishing expedition.
"I love teaching wilderness courses because
of the age group and because you can show the students how to take
personal responsibility. What we impart to the students in those
terms can really be applied to their lives, how to take responsibility
for one's actions and how those actions affect others. We show them
how they can transfer skills to the front country. During the course,
they just get totally jazzed about the skills that they are learning."
