Fishing School

Willy & Salmon
"Thank you both for a memorable 4 days.... It allowed us to get away from the speed of our everyday life and we learned to fly fish at the same time! Between Willy’s enthusiasm for angling and your enthusiasm for people, we were consistently entertained and inspired.... Until we come to stay again!"

Village Victorian Bed & Breakfast and Catamount Fishing, offer a 2-day comprehensive fly fishing school with all amenities. The ideal scenario for the beginner to intermediate angler wishing to build a strong foundation for a lifetime of fly-fishing pleasure. Village Victorian hosts the event. Catamount Fishing conducts the school.

2-Day School: Check-in to B&B at least one day before school. We provide breakfast with your instructor both mornings. Requires minimum 3-night stay at the B&B. Stay as long as you like. Usual multi-night discounts apply after special $10 discount for attending fishing school.

Catamount Fishing provides a certified casting instructor gearing the instruction to each individual's learning curve, getting you familiar with all the equipment, casting techniques and knots. There will be time on the river, instruction on entomology, fly tying and “where to find the fish”!

“Thank you for making our first experience in a bed and breakfast such a wonderful one. As we have said so much since we’ve been here, Vermont is such a wonderful place, it is truly God’s Country! We enjoyed seeing all the homes in the neighborhood, so picturesque, but so comfortable and lived in.

The fishing trip (fly fishing school) with Willie was everything we hoped it would be. Willie is a great teacher and took us to a location that was abundant with wild life, spotting turkey, deer, mink and duck. My objective was to learn about equipment and the proper technique of fly fishing. He not only did that, but educated us about stream health, entomology and how to use the right type of fly. But, if you don’t know where to find the trout, none of that would be any good at all. Willie taught us where to look for trout.

I told Ellen once this week that a little angel was on my shoulder that helped me plan this trip, from the path we traveled to the place where we rested our head. Many thanks to Phil who made us feel we had our own personal chef! I hope our paths will cross again.”
