The Orvis Experience
A Trusted Name in Outdoor Adventure
The Orvis Company was founded in Manchester, Vermont in 1856, and in the decades since has become synonymous with adventures in the great outdoors. Guests at The Equinox can enjoy lessons in fly fishing and shooting with Orvis’ trained instructors right here in the Green Mountains. Whether you’re a beginner who’s never cast a line or aimed a gun, or someone with years of experience, these schools can help you improve your technique.
Please contact the concierge for additional information.
Orvis Fly Fishing School
Learn how to cast like a seasoned angler, from setting up your rod and selecting the perfect fly to catching and then safely releasing your fish. Classes are held on the famed Battenkill River and on fully stocked casting ponds, so you’re sure to catch a big one. And since classes are limited to one or two people, you enjoy a lot of personal attention.
Orvis Shooting School
No matter how experienced you might be handling a gun, you’ll learn new techniques with instruction based on the English Churchill method. This instinctive approach to shotgunning can be used for upland and waterfowl hunting as well as sporting clays. Classes include instruction on stance, footwork, gun handling, swing, visual concentration, proper gun mount and correct fit of the gun stock, plus a chance to learn from the best.
