Two Day Schools
Lectures on tackle, aquatic entomology, fly selection, and knots compliment the finest fly casting instruction in the industry. Your first day at the Homestead Resort’s Stoneybrook Lodge will culminate on the school’s private trout pond at The Homestead just minutes from Traverse City (approximately 30 miles from the resort). Sunday’s class will begin in our classroom in our Traverse City classroom at the Orvis store putting us closer to the beautiful Boardman River where after lunch you will spend the rest of the day wading the river and fishing for wild brook and brown trout. Two day schools include course materials, use of all tackle including waders, lunch, and licenses. Transportation is not included.
