Adrenaline High

by Sarah Tuff

The dream: To make like Robert Redford with a magic touch and a fly rod
Go to: Kenmore, Scotland
And enroll at: Orvis Fly Fishing Academy

They make it look so easy, don't they? Those anglers along the river, flicking their lines as if they were taming tigers. Meanwhile, all you've tamed are the bushes behind you. Time to head to the Orvis Academy that holds court on the River Tay in eastern Scotland. Check into the Kenmore Hotel, built in 1572, and spend two days immersing yourself in the river's rich fly-fishing with an expert guide. (The Kenmore's Taymouth Restaurant serves a divine roast salmon with red pepper salsa. Consider it inspiration.) You'll learn the nuances of Spey casting, as well as how to catch an Atlantic salmon on the fly, which is sort of like taming a tiger. Only it tastes way better when smoked and shipped back home.
$755, including one night's accommodation, tackle, and lunch
