2019 Spring School & Warm Up Weekend: May 17 - May 19, 2019

The 2019 Juliana’s Angler’s Linda Hotchkiss Memorial Spring School & Warm Up Weekend returns to Ten Mile River Preserve in Dover Plains NY (90 minutes north of NYC). We will begin our ALL INCLUSIVE PROGRAM with a gourmet dinner at the Old Drover’s Inn on Friday night before retiring to the Preserve for the evening. Saturday morning we breakfast together before splitting into two groups. One group remains on the grounds learning about fly fishing from soup to nuts while the second, more experienced group, heads out to local waters with a NYS licensed guide for on-water instruction and angling. This second group is supplied with their lunch and will only return to the Preserve when the fishing is done!

New anglers will spend Saturday morning with experienced instructors learning about equipment, flies, knots, stream dynamics, insect life cycles in the lodge before heading out to the casting pond and fields to learn the basics of casting and angling. Lunch is served in the lodge, or outside, depending upon the weather. In the afternoon, new anglers head to the private segments of the Ten Mile River for on-stream instruction in entomology, casting, playing and landing fish. This group also stays on the water until the fishing is done!

At the end of the day, both groups reunite for cocktails, charcuterie, and fish tales before sitting down for a plated dinner. After dinner participants gather around the famous Ten Mile fire pit for S’mores and another yarn or two before retiring.

Sunday morning starts early as the entire group grabs some coffee and heads to the private sections of the Ten Mile River with instructors for an hour or two of early morning angling. Breakfast is served back in the lodge and is then followed by a casting demonstration before the program ends. Participants are welcome to remain on the club grounds for the day and lounge or fish the private river segments. Sporting Clays are also available for an additional charge.

Program price is based upon double occupancy, each room has it’s own full bath.
