  • Excellent sporting facilities! Beautiful clays course. Well planted covers in the bird hunting fields. The fully equipped Orvis retail store has everything you need to shoot and cast a fly. Friendly and knowledgeable staff!
  • Great Facility with lots of challenging and fresh presentations. The trappers and staff are excellent and the grounds are gorgeous. Highly recommend!
  • My daughter and I had a wonderful time! Our instructor, Jonathan, was outstanding. Lunch in the lodge was very good. Everyone there was so friendly. Beautiful setting. Would definitely go back!
  • Wonderful time in a beautiful location. There were things to do and see that filled the whole day. I will definitely be back next year.
  • I went solo to the last school of the year in Millbrook. I am an avid lake fisherman with no fly experience. I own a retail store and have zero to do with the Orvis organization. 50 year fly fishing pro, Bob Meyen was the instructor of our 3 student class. The school is located in a pure country, woodsy setting on 450 acres of country heaven. The structure is cabin like and fitting to the environment. A modest Orvis store that sells more hunting than fishing supplies and decent variety of clothing is the hub of the facility. Before class, we first placed our order for lunch(which is included, prepared there and wonderful!) then we proceeded to the classroom out back. Bob is so much into fly fishing and sharing his knowledge but never once got ahead of our learning curve and made sure we used his building block technique of teaching to get us from A to Z. After introductions and a basic fly fishing intro and casting skills, we proceeded to the fishing pond which is stocked. Without flies, Bob taught us casting skills that are pure and without bad habit. Once we groomed our casts, lunch then back to class, more casting technique on video shown, back to the pond. We worked on more technique and were filmed to view on second day. Through the two days, we learned most everything you need to know about the sport. From the actual flies trout love and what stages through the seasons they feed, to the tied flies used to replicate them. we viewed our video taken the day before and Bob pointed out and corrected any bad habits that could arise. We learned the basic knot tying techniques and practiced them until Bob gave us the thumbs up. We went back to the pond and practiced casting and catching small fish with flies. The day ended at Wappingers stream for the final test of our newly acquired skills. After learning about wader set up and stream management, we looked at rocks in the streams that had critters on them such at caddis that trout feed on. After Bobs demo in the stream using various flies, the three of us were positioned and were coached, putting it all together. Three rainbows later with proper catch and release, and nothing but the excitement of it all, the weekend sadly ended at the school. Orvis offers the students 20% discounts on merchandise during the two days, but make sure you ask what is NOT discounted as they are not completely clear communicating this offer. I totally recommend this school to newbies and those needed to brush up on their skills and basics. Pros might find this class a bit elementary for the majority of material covered. There was a bit of sales pitch during the school, but not annoying or over done.
