The Green Drake's Orvis-endorsed fly-fishing school imparts fish-foragers of all ages and skill levels with fly-fishing fundamentals before escorting trout-trawlers on daylong fishing trips to practice newfound skills. Expert fish whisperers oversee each session, which maintains a cap of eight students, providing participants with individual instructor attention to ask questions regarding line strength and what to do if a slippery catfish sells you a pair of counterfeit sunglasses. Master casting techniques and learn the ins and outs of the sport, including how to catch a trout, how to interpret water currents, and the proper way to play, net, and release fish.
The all-day angling adventure provides a forum for fledgling fishermen to test their grizzly bear-like fishing adroitness under the discerning eyes of expert fishermen. Each daytrip equips participants with all of the necessary gear and provides lunch and drinks throughout the day to diminish the odds of falling prey to a hamburger-masked human trap set out by a crafty bluegill.
