Learn to Cast… In Your Backyard

With so many of us spending more time at home than we expected this summer, Orvis Adventures (orvis.com/fly-fishing-schools) has launched programs that promise to keep you busy and improve your outdoor skills. The perfect fly cast is always tricky business, and often essential when it comes to enticing selective fish to strike, as is the know-how of what fly to use and when to strike an indicator—but these two packages give you at-home video analysis, one-on-one instruction, and in-depth feedback from Orvis instructors. If you’re looking to save some cash, Orvis is sharing valuable content on its YouTube channel and hosting weekly fly-tying workshops via Facebook Live videos (facebook.com/orvis). That should be more than enough instruction to impress when you are back on the water with friends.
