If its not frozen solid, go up to the riffles where the water is open. That's where the trout will likely be anyway. It gets much colder here in MN than it does over there in VT, and yet there is open water all year around.

Please don't assume I'm ignorant simply because I'm disagreeing with you.

You're right. My apologies. I too will vacate this thread in interest of interesting discourse rather than personal argument.

One sale you need to look for is the free line with (insert model here) reel purchase. I bought an Access II reel and got WF5 line and backer free. That's $70 in line alone. The salesman was shocked when I mentioned it and looked it up. No issues once he saw it on their site.

I was told there is a free reel with rod purchase, but I believe thats with their higher end rods.

And if you take any of the Orvis free FF classes, you get a booklet with discount coupons.

Look for Orvis Factory Outlets too. The one near Lewes DE has quite a few great deals on refurbed rods.
FYI: Not all Orvis Outlets carry fishing gear. Some are clothing only.

You bring up a good point in the factory stores. The one near me in Kittery Maine has quite a few rods coming through...so I have been told. I popped in and they told me they get all the rods from Helios to the lower end rods. (When I was there they had a bunch of Superfines for about a $100). The catch is they don't have a warranty but they are often steeply discounted. Very steeply. The sales guy told me most of them come from the factory store as practice rods for casters and then some as returns from unhappy original purchasers. I'm quite partial to a lifetime warranty of Sage but would love to grab a Helios in any weight if it was cheap enough.

If so... then maybe I should start inquiring about some Sage packages vs Orvis packages.

It looks like Sage's fee to repair is $50 where Orvis' fee to repair is $30. What else can you guys tell me regarding Sage vs Orvis? Quality? Customer Service? Value?
You should read the recent article by Zachary Matthews in "American Angler.". It puts the whole warranty return for at-fault breakage in a different light.

Personally, I expect a company to stand behind their work, not my clumsiness. That said, Orvis acknowledges that their warranty is basically an insurance policy, so car doors incidents are fair game.

For some one who is clumsy like myself... that insurance policy is peace of mind. Like with all insurance... you never hope you have to use it but it is sure nice to know it is there incase you ever need it.
