With Autumn just around the corner, the days are getting shorter and the air is getting colder, but most of all, the long sleeved clothing season is in full swing. One wardrobe staple you can always count on for this time of year is your long-sleeved shirts. They can be dressed up, or dressed down, depending on your occasion. Here are our favourite ways to style a shirt:
Great pleasure can be had just sitting by the river and just watching. It is hugely therapeutic just to relax, sit quietly and observe in detail what is going on around you. The very best anglers are those who have the ability to really see.
On Tuesday 21st August, we were delighted to host a day on our Timsbury beat for six fantastic fly fishing enthusiasts. Graham and Warren Chegwidden, David and Clare Rozzell and Peter and Ashley Cook, all of whom were the lucky winners of our Father’s Day Facebook competition ‘Win a Day on the Beat for Dad’ back in June.

The long hot summer has made fishing difficult on our beats but most evenings, under the trees, fish could be found quietly sipping something off the surface. With little sign of any significant up-wing or caddis fly hatches , what was it that the fish were eating? Anglers were trying the normal staples like CDC olives, spinner patterns and sedges and the fish were ignoring them.
On Thursday 9th August, we enjoyed a day of fly fishing at our Timsbury beat and were joined by a range of special guests, including Orvis Ambassador Marina Gibson @marinagibsonfishing, Nick Parker @hampshireriverkeeper, Phil Parker @redneckriverkeeper, Rob Thompson @hampshire.bass.nut, Oscar Boatfield and Nell Wharton from @boatonflyfishers, directors of CHALK Bedrock of Flyfishing, Leo and Chris from @chalkstreamfly, Nick Weston from game and cookery school @huntergathercook and Dannielle Norman, blogger and founder of @getoutgirluk.

From everyone at Orvis, here’s wishing all the dad’s out there a Happy Father’s Day. In this video, Orvis’s Charley Perkins offers a tribute to his grandfather, Leigh Perkins, who still spends 300 days a year on the water and in the field and shows no signs of slowing down.
You’re headed out on a short holiday. That’s great! Now don’t mess up your mini adventure by packing your luggage for a weekend trip with scores of things you don’t need, dragging along overpacked bags, and leaving things behind you wish you’d included.
