Have you ever wondered what it would be like to be the one in the movie, A River Runs Through It, that everyone fantasizes about with the fly line glistening in the sun and whipping through the air? Would you like to learn all about fly fishing over the course of a glorious weekend without having to go out and buy all the equipment and spend a lot of money for lessons?

We can do that for you the weekend of May 18th - 20th!

Arrive on Friday and enjoy the afternoon unwinding, slipping out in a canoe on our island-studded lake or exploring our gorgeous emerald woods, and relaxing for the next day's fun-filled activities!

After a hearty breakfast Saturday morning, the class meets on the grassy hill and learns to master the basics of fly fishing. Then we break for lunch and move to the lake, trying out our new skills and fishing with Jim for the rest of the afternoon. Following breakfast on Sunday morning, Jim continues to guide us while we continue to fish, correcting any imperfections that may have crept into our technique and helping us grow as budding fisher folk. After a break for lunch we spend the rest of the afternoon fishing, eventually bidding fond farewells to those among our newfound fishing friends who can't stay.

Our instructor will be renowned expert Jim Zullo, a true master of the fly fisherman's art. Jim has fished the Northwoods country all of his life, guiding many people on fly fishing expeditions they'll never forget - both in the Adirondacks and beyond. (Jim also happens to be the famous Shenendahowa Hall of Fame basketball coach!)

Jim is supplying all of the gear needed - no need to worry about bringing anything! Of course if you already have a rod and reel we welcome you to bring them, as this weekend will give you a chance to get to know your gear better than you thought possible. We supply breakfast and lunch on Saturday and Sunday
, plus the cottage of your choice. There may be limited cottages available and we tend to book quickly, so please contact us as soon as possible if this fantastic opportunity interests you.

The cost for single occupancy, lessons, gear, and breakfast and lunch on Saturday and Sunday will be $300.00 per day - not including your open day on Friday, which is on the house! A second person in a cottage (because, after all, as Jim Zullo says, "some of the best people fly fishing, and the easiest to teach, are women and children"), will be an extra $75.00 per day per person.

The closing date to reserve a place for the Great Fly Fishing Weekend is May 14th. There will be no actual check out time on Sunday due to the lessons; you're welcome to stay as long as you like on Sunday - just have a blast and enjoy the thrill of being the Nothwoods and learning from a master fly fisherman.

So this Spring no more excuses . . .
Come to Prospect Point Cottages and Live Your Dream!
