My husband and I visited Orvis for a two day fly fishing class. Having never fly fished before, we were excited, but anxious that two days would have been to long for an experience we were not sure we would enjoy. We had a blast!...More

There is no dress code, however you should obviously dress for the season. Sandals or flip flops are not a good idea, sneakers (closed shoes or boots) are better for using the waders. Pack sunblock and insect repellent.
