Fly Fishing Instruction

While some anglers simply wish to learn the basics of the fly cast, others are looking to get a few extra feet out of their double-haul. Regardless of skill level, the instructors at the Orvis Flagship School in Manchester, Vermont, will make you a better caster. Using the Orvis Progressive Method of teaching fly casting, our instructors will walk you seamlessly through the process of becoming a more efficient and effective caster.

Only two miles away from the Orvis Flagship Store rest the crystal clear waters of the Equinox Pond. Our Combination Pond Trips give students the opportunity to put newly-learned skills to immediate use. Students on our Pond Trips learn casting and rigging fundamentals on the bank, then take to the water in one of our stable drift boats. The Equinox trout can be finicky, but they are more than capable of filling out the complete fly-fishing experience.

*We only have two boats on the pond to limit fishing pressure. Trips are subject to availability.

Combination Pond Trip (2 hours)
1 Person - $120.00
2 People - $160.00

Combination Pond Trip (4 hours)
1 Person - $185.00

Wingshooting Instruction

The Orvis Progressive Method of wingshooting instruction builds off of the English Churchill Method of instinctive field shooting. This process allows shooters a dynamic and comfortable way to instinctively break clay targets. Our wingshooting instructors are truly leaders in the field; under their guidance beginners learn the basics of safety, gun mount, and swing, while more seasoned shooters benefit from individualized problem solving. Our Manchester facility is an instructional area only, and not open to public target shooting.

1 Person - $190.00
2 People - $225.00
3 People - $260.00
