Orvis Fly Fishing School – 2 Day Class

Perched on a mountaintop, overlooking the magnificent Vail Valley and Sawatch Range, sits The Lodge & Spa at Cordillera, and the location of the Orvis Fly Fishing School. With 1.7 miles of the Eagle River running through the Cordillera property, this is an ideal location to learn how to fly fish. Cordillera sits on more than 7,000 acres, and after fly fishing school is over, students can take advantage of other outdoor activities, such as hiking, golfing, and horseback riding.

The Orvis fly fishing school covers everything from fly casting, choosing the right tackle, leaders and knots to fly selection and how to safely release fish. Our head instructor, Jeff Lyon, is entering into his 6th year of teaching this class and is looking forward to another great year.

You’ll cover it all at the Edwards, Colorado Fly Fishing School:

  • Fly casting techniques
  • Essential knots
  • How to choose your gear and tackle
  • Stream entomology (the science of insects)
  • Proper fly selection
  • How to read water and currents, river safety
  • How to play, land, and safely release fish
