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.
For the chance to win a pair of tickets to the London Fly Fishing Fair 2018, just comment ‘WIN’ on this post!
Whether you’re venturing out on lake or river, chances are a some point a niggling wind will spring up to ruin your presentation. This is especially true on those early spring outings when we’re plagued with unpredictable conditions. Nothing is worse now than being on a favourite beat only to be faced with a grueling downstream breeze.

Come the New Year, our thoughts often turn to the season ahead and of course our fishing equipment. Regardless of whether you dabble with grayling during the colder months or not, it’s best to give your equipment the once over prior to a new season.
Generally speaking, October and November can provide us with memorable days when it comes to grayling. As the sun sinks ever lower each day, Large dark olives and Pale watery duns have their last fling before winter takes hold.
The ending of any trout season can be tinged with sadness for many fisherman, yet it also brings with it an overwhelming feeling of content satisfaction as well as offering an opportunity to reflect on the season that was.
