Durable Fishing Gear Made to Last

Buy your fly-fishing gear from Orvis and with the proper care, you won’t need to replace your gear for years to come. Fall and winter are the perfect times to prepare for next year’s opening day now. Stock up on the equipment, supplies, and clothing you need now so you’re ready for your first day on the water. Chances are you spent more time fishing this year than ever before as COVID wreaked havoc on the world and caused travel bans. Maybe your favorite fishing store was forced to close during the stay-at-home order and you made do with the supplies you had on hand.

As an Orvis affiliate, I know their products are manufactured with quality craftsmanship and built to last. The Orvis Company affiliate program allows me to endorse products I use and trust. Check out Orvis’ Orvis

Orvis Embraces Conservation Efforts

I understand and appreciate the great strides conservationists make every day. Orvis remains at the top of the ongoing efforts to clean up our waterways and protect them from future contamination.

During my media trip to Orvis’ flagship store and factory in Manchester, VT, I received personalized training in all-things fly-fishing related with an emphasis on conservation efforts.

Build Your Foundation

Learn to Fly Fish with the Orvis Pros (or find an instructor near you)

Find a fly-fishing class at your local Orvis retail store or sign up for classes offered by other organizations like Trout Unlimited or your state’s fish and boat commission. That is to say, learn proper casting techniques so you can fully appreciate my new hobby and catch fish. After that, get out on the water and practice, practice, practice!

Giving Back

Orvis donates five percent of pre-tax profits every year to protect nature, support communities, and advance canine health and well-being. Proceeds are estimated to be $14 million in more than 25 years.

Get Outdoors and Challenge Yourself

Learn Something New EVERY DAY

Fly fishing is a sport that takes years to master through continuous trial and error. The more time you devote to education and practice, the more likely you’ll grow your skills. Devote time to practice and learning about trout and other species’ habits. That means hours and hours of casting and time on the water until you’re in sync with your equipment.

Recreation Therapy! Venture outdoors.

Each hour you spend fishing, walking your dog, and hiking positively impacts your overall mental and physical health. Strive for 60 or more minutes per day of your own personal free time.

As a result, the more you engage in outdoor activities, the less likely you’ll worry or stress. Think of outdoor recreation as a therapy session for whatever ails you.

Meanwhile, practice responsible fishing and conservation and adhere to rules and regulations in place to protect fish and their natural habitats.

A Personal Note – Share Your Love!

Fly-fishing gear is a perfect gift for family and friends. Loved ones are more likely to join you if they have the equipment. Find the balance between work and play and pass that along to someone you love.

A few years ago, I bought my youngest an Encounter rod and reel combo. He wasn’t overly enthusiastic about learning to fish but it’s my pleasure to share my love for the outdoors. Consequently, we occasionally get out on the water together. 

The Orvis factory tour was a treat. We saw firsthand how fly-fishing gear is made.

I purchased my first Orvis Clearwater fly rod and reel combo in 2012 and it travels with me everywhere I go. Who knows when you’ll get the bug to fish?

Outstanding Warranty

Face the fact we all damage our fly-fishing equipment at some point. My first break happened when I tripped on a rock while fishing in the Delaware River. Fly rods and reels can also be damaged from improper use. The Orvis guarantee is incredible. You can read more about warranties here or contact your local Orvis retail store
