Tentatively planned for early June 2023. More details forthcoming.
“I’ve always thought fly fishing looked ______ (insert any of the following here: fun, beautiful, graceful, relaxing, meditative, etc.)”
If you’ve ever said anything along those lines, you’d be absolutely right…on all counts. Whether you’re already interested in learning to fly fish, looking for an excuse to explore the natural world, or seeking ways to slow down and relax, here’s a unique opportunity to do all of the above.
Spend the weekend learning the basics of fly casting and fishing while immersed in the beauty of the Adirondacks. You’ll learn about equipment, casting, flies and fishing techniques. In addition, the retreat includes angling opportunities to target wild, native Brook Trout on the fly. This means you’ll come away with the information and skills necessary to strike out on your own fly fishing journey. You’ll also have ample free time to explore. Take a walk, sit by the fire, fly fish, or paddle a canoe or kayak around Sagamore Lake. Embrace the opportunity to connect more deeply with the natural world of which you are part.
