Casting Call


Casting Call Lake Placid Lodge Offers Fly Fishing Sprinkled with Luxury
Fly fishing – the classic art of angling, is a part of Americana, a beloved pastime for generations. Lake Placid Lodge, the Relais & Châteaux resort in New York’s picturesque Adirondacks, is a nostalgic nod to the venerable Great Camp Era and fittingly, is now one of only two lodges in the state endorsed by Orvis, the premier authority on fly fishing since the 1800s. Whether a full or half day on the water is desired, a fly fishing excursion plays the perfect supporting role for a visit to Lake Placid and Lake Placid Lodge – where a unique rustic elegance percolates throughout the property, seamlessly blending exemplary service and epicurean dining with the outdoors and the timeless angling avocation.
Guests at Lake Placid Lodge will receive a complimentary Helios Fly Rod [$750 value] when they sign up for the Lodge’s two-day Fly Fishing School in partnership with Jones Outfitters, which is offered select dates May through October and covers fly fishing essentials including fly tying, casting, and entomology for $1485.
Steps from the hotel, the spring fed waters of Lake Placid completely replenish themselves every few days and offer an abundance of bass, perch, lake trout and rainbow trout, and novices and experts alike will enjoy guided trips on the West Branch of the Ausable River, which is heralded as one of the best streams in the East.
Fly Fishing Schools are currently scheduled for May 23-26, June 10-13, June 17-20, September 5-8, and October 17-20, 2010.*
