Free Fly Fishing Lessons with Orvis
Orvis is once again gearing up to offer their popular free fly fishing lessons nationwide!
Every Saturday from April 23 through June 18, 2016, Orvis retail stores and participating dealers will offer Fly Fishing 101, a free clinic providing people of all ages an opportunity to learn more about the sport. Now in its seventh year, Orvis has introduced over 50,000 people to the joys of fly fishing with these complimentary clinics which offer participants lessons on fly casting and outfit rigging.
“At Orvis, we’re incredibly proud of our ongoing journey to share our love of the outdoors with others,” said Tom Rosenbauer, Marketing Manager for Orvis. “Our fifty-year history of fly fishing schools and annual Fly Fishing 101 clinics speak to our ongoing commitment to providing people of all ages the opportunity to learn the sport from the world’s best instructors. These introductory classes are designed to show you how much fun fly fishing can be, and that anyone can do it.”
A list of locations and dates for the 2016 classes can be found HERE and anyone interested should contact their local Orvis store or participating dealer to reserve space in the clinics. Upon completion of the Fly Fishing 101 course participants will receive special in-store offers valid toward the purchase of Orvis products and a free Trout Unlimited membership—at a value of $35.
For those that have completed Fly Fishing 101 and are ready to learn more, Fly Fishing 201 will be offered on select Sundays in May and June.
