ChallengingGet ready to keep up with our highest-energy group. These demanding — and rewarding — programs are for seasoned outdoor enthusiasts.
Outsmarting a trout with a fly rod has for a century been the Holy Grail of American sportsmen ranging from Ernest Hemingway to Bing Crosby and Ted Williams. In the spectacular North Country of Maine, backwoods-savvy fly-fishing guides teach you the secrets of what Izaac Walton called “The Contemplative Man’s Recreation.” In a locale known for some of the best fishing in the East, set out each day from Appalachian Mountain Club cabins to nearby ponds and rivers to try out your new or newly polished skills — tying knots, rigging your rod, casting and knowing the precise time to “hit” a hungry brook trout. By week’s end, you may have even spotted a moose!


Highlights

• Fly fish for wild brook trout on Little Lyford Pond or the West Branch of the Pleasant River with a registered Maine Guide.
• On the beginner's date, learn casting techniques and how to select flies, while on the intermediate date practice using nymphs — flies that sink, rather than float, in the water.
• Using an AMC canoe, explore Little Lyford Pond or other remote ponds.
Due to the nature of this program, listening devices are not available.
