What could be better than learning a new healthy outdoor sport? How about for free! Head to your nearest Orvis retailer and sign up for one of the company's famous free fly fishing classes, Space is limited and classes kickoff this weekend, so get busy!
Get the kids, grab your spouse and pick up a healthy new habit. Orvis makes it easy with free classes as FF101 and FF201 are currently being offer through June. Now is your chance to learn fly fishing basics. Free fishing lessons on fly casting, outfit rigging, flies and more. Classes run Saturdays and Sundays, but time is running out so book today.
- April: 19 and 26
- May: 3, 10, 17, 24, and 31
- June: 7 and 14
Once you've completed Fly Fishing 101, you're ready for the next step, Fly Fishing 201. Join your local Orvis fishing pros for a short outing on local waters for a chance to catch your first fly-caught fish! Contact the store nearest you for more information on the outing. FF202 Event Dates are also on Saturdays and Sundays:
- May: 4 and 18
- June: 8
As an organizer of these great events, there's nothing better than watching a mom and son or a dad and daughter spend time together and pick up a new fun, outdoor activity together. Last year we had a grandpa and grandson in the class and the duo had a blast. In these times, free is great, but getting a child off a video game or off the computer is even better. Check with your local store...many stores offer extra dates as well! There is also a paid FF301 option if you are ready to go to the next level after the free FF101 and FF201.
Upon Completion of the courses, you will receive a special in-store offers valid toward purchase of Orvis products and a Free Trout Unlimited membership (a $35 value). Federation of Fly Fishers is offering a free 1-year electronic membership, also valued at $35. Classes typically run tow to three hours and get started at 8 a.m. Space is limited in these classes, Please RSVP soon to reserve your space.
