After being led through a refresher course on the basics, prepare to don your hip-waders and head out on your own with newfound confidence in your ability to get a bite—both with the written word and the camera.

The workshop takes place next to the Deschutes River in Bend, Oregon. The former mill town reinvented itself as an adventurer’s playground. In addition to water pursuits, the mountain town 160 miles southeast of Portland is known for road cycling and hiking trails. Sunny days, low humidity, and cool nights characterize the dry, high-desert climate, averaging October highs and lows of 63° Fahrenheit and 31° Fahrenheit.
