Orlando, FL (PRWEB) April 19, 2007
The JW Marriott Grande Lakes Orlando now offers comprehensive learning seminars and extended adventure activities with the new ORVIS Orlando Two-Day Fly Fishing School. Part of the Grande Lakes Outfitters program, the two-day school is appropriate for all skill levels and ideal for family and corporate groups visiting the Orlando resort.
The two-day school involves a hands-on approach with a balanced schedule of classroom seminars and field instruction by ORVIS-endorsed fly fishing Instructors. Seminars take place in a variety of on-site locations where students will learn casting techniques, essential knots, gear and tackle selection, proper fly selection and how to read the water. How to play, land and safely release fish will also be covered as all fishing is catch and release at the Orlando resort. Sessions are held on Wednesday through Thursday and Saturday through Sunday. The ratio of instructors to students is 1:4 or less and only the finest in ORVIS fly fishing equipment is used.
The two-day school is an extension of the programs already offered since mid-2006. Starting at $60 per person, seminars, fly fishing and eco-tour adventures are also available to guests of the Orlando golf resort and the adjacent property, The Ritz-Carlton, as well as to all outside visitors.
Priced at $430 per person, registration for guests staying at the hotel and non-hotel guests must be completed through http://www.orvis.com or by calling (800) 235-9763. For room reservations, school guests can visit the ORVIS website or call The Ritz-Carlton Orlando at (800) 576-5760/ JW Marriott Orlando at (800)-576-5750 and ask for the school rate.
Guests can book these outings through the luxury Orlando hotel concierge or directly through the adjacent property, The Ritz-Carlton, which has a golf shop certified as an ORVIS full line dealer, and offers guests the latest in ORVIS fly fishing equipment and apparel. Upon booking, the Grande Lakes Outfitters "camouflaged real tree cart" will pick up guests from the fly fishing corner and deliver them to their outdoor adventure.
Guests at both hotels can enjoy all the facilities and services at Grande Lakes Orlando, including the 18-hole championship Orlando golf course, designed by Greg Norman, the 40,000-square-foot Ritz-Carlton Spa offering a wide selection of natural treatments, baths and hydrotherapies, and advice from the world's first Citrus Consultant.
