Ladies Fly Fishing Weekend

Ladies Weekend

 May 21st and 22nd, 2011

Hosted by Dave Hise of Caster's Fly Shop of Hickory, NC and guest Orvis guide, Reba Brinkman. Reba is a guide/instructor for the Orvis Endorsed Fly Fishing Schools at the Biltmore.

Enjoy two full days of guided fly fishing on private trophy trout waters in southwestern Virginia! Take pleasure in home cooked meals and relax in a picturesque country house on the river.

In the secluded hills of southwestern Virginia, are numerous stretches of private water that hold some of the largest and feistiest rainbow trout found anywhere. Double digit rainbows (up to 17 lbs.) are commonly seen and sometimes hooked (the operative word is hooked) in these trophy streams. Fish in the 16 to 20 inch class are more than plentiful and fish between 20 and 26 inches are caught with regularity. These fish aren't fed trout pellets; so, they are in tune with the "natural" environment just as a "wild" brown in a river in New Zealand would be. The best thing is, you don't have to travel to such exotic places to find them. You will have the opportunity to swing or strip streamers, indicator or high stick nymph, and even toss dry flies on some occasions. Join our Orvis Endorsed Guide Service for a day of guaranteed solitude and a chance to land the fish of a lifetime.

Price: Only $450 per person (includes accommodations, meals and two full days of guided fishing). 

Only 1 spot remains so book now!
