Take a look behind the scenes with Orvis Ambassador Marina Gibson as she pays our Head Office a visit to learn all about our rod repairs process.
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.
Sue lit up as she cast a bit of red fluff out over the water. I first met Sue and her husband Phil on a snowy day in March. They had both always wanted to try fly fishing and the Orvis Free Learn to Fly Fish programme was the perfect opportunity.
On Thursday 12th April, we celebrated our #5050onthewater initiative with a day of fly fishing at Thornwood Springs. We were joined by a range of men, women and children of all ages.
On Friday 23rd and Saturday 24th March, the Business Design Centre, Islington, opened its doors to welcome an entourage of enthusiastic angling experts and novices alike. The crowds had flocked from both near and far, bringing with them an air of eager anticipation and excitement. The clock struck 9.00, the time was upon us! We at Orvis were thrilled to join the other exhibitors as we manned our stand at London’s second ever annual Fly Fishing Fair.
That trout is a story.
That trout is a story I want to share with you.
I will try to be brief but hey, that’s a fishing story right?!
Back in the days I was in a wonderful beat of a stunning stream in Trentino, a breathtaking Dolomitic Region in North-Eastern Italy.
I was guiding a fellow angler and we were having such a great time.
For many mid March heralds the start of the brown trout season on rivers and streams. Given our current weather trends it looks as though opening day is set to be a chilly one. Even for those whose season is delayed until April, it’s not unusual to experience icy weather well into spring. Understandably, many will be keen to open their innings using a dry fly and despite the Arctic blast there’s every likelihood of this.
