Does ORVIS usually have any decent off-season sales?
I've saved up enough for the package I want to get (I think I'm going to go with their Clearwater II combo which includes the Clearwater II rod, a Battenkill Bar Stock III reel, backing, line and case). I've got my first flyfishing lesson here in a few weeks and am waiting to get my gear until after the lesson (since they provide everything you need at the lesson). I was just wondering if a little later in the year if Orvis usually has decent off-season sales on rods and reels. If so... are the savings worth holding off a little while to take advantage of them (I only see myself getting out there just a couple of times this season) or should I go ahead and get the gear after my class so I can start practicing right away?
