Don’t want to pack a rod…no problem.  Just show up and grab an Orvis sample rod off the rack to cast and check out.  Since 1856, Orvis has been improving the experience that people have in the outdoors. Cast-an Orvis…Win an Orvis.  That’s right, simply come to the event and cast one of the supplied Orvis samples and automatically get entered into the "Helios 3 rod-of-your-choice" raffle at the end of the event.  A full assortment of Orvis rods will be available to demo including the Helios 3, new for 2020 Recon, Clearwater, Mission Spey, and Superfine Glass.
