Fly Fishing, Hunting, and Falconry in Vermont

Vermont ranks among the very finest states in the country when it comes to the great outdoors, and with a perch at the Equinox Golf Resort & Spa, you’re perfectly poised to take advantage of Green Mountain recreation.

You’ve got plentiful local opportunities for hiking, skiing, snowshoeing, paddling, horseback riding, and the like, not to mention availing yourself of the varied thrills at Bromley’s Sun Mountain Adventure Park. But we also set our guests up with absolutely top-tier instruction in three classic outdoor pursuits in Vermont’s gorgeous mountain-scapes.

Orvis Fly Fishing School

Few activities deliver quite so pure a combination of fresh air, scenery, peace of mind, and the meditative exercise of skill as fly fishing. The fly-fishing classes offered at the Orvis schoolhouse and along the riffles of the Battenkill River introduce you to this soulful form of angling, providing in-depth tutorials on topics such as the proper selection of flies, fundamental fly-fishing knots, and the Orvis Progressive Casting Method.

You can schedule your Orvis fly-fishing class right here!

Orvis Shooting School

Learn the nuts and bolts of the English Churchill shotgunning method—commonly employed in waterfowl and upland-bird hunting—through a one- or two-day class at the Orvis Shooting School. Your course includes use of an Orvis shotgun as well as all targets, ammunition, and safety protection, plus your very own copy of The Orvis Wingshooting Handbook. Whatever your experience level, you’ll learn a great deal honing your shot against clay targets under expert tutelage.

You can reserve your one- or two-day Orvis Shooting School class here.

Green Mountain Falconry School

Master falconer Rob Waite, who studied his craft in the United Kingdom, has long provided Equinox guests with hands-on experience in this ancient art. Through the Green Mountain Falconry School at Boorn Brook Farm’s Introduction to Falconry class, you’ll work with the lovely and well-trained Harris hawks Elmer, Mycroft, and Bailey, learning the ins and outs of flying these regal birds of prey.

Book your hawk-heavy sessions at the Green Mountain Falconry School here.
