Just in time for trout season, The Homestead’s one- or two-day Orvis Fly Fishing School can teach you everything you need to know to step into the water with confidence on opening day.
From knot-tying to basic entomology, casting to choosing the best gear—the basic fly fishing know-how that might take you years to acquire on your own—the instructors at Orvis Michigan have you covered. Check out the details along with how you can sign up for classes beginning this month.
If this is the year you’re determined to scratch “Learn to Fly Fish” off your springtime bucket list, The Homestead is the place. And the time is now. Trout season opens on April 26th on a Michigan stream near you.

Classes begin April 26th with students enjoying special rates if you book an overnight stay at the resort.
