10.04.12 Orvis New York City kicks off Fall Orvis Days 2012

     Spent the early afternoon at the Orvis New York City Store. Had a nice intimate group of anglers who sat in on my presentation. Some of whom I fished with before and others I hope to fish with in the future. Today started the week long Orvis Days, and it continues tonight with live music, wine and cheese, and some special in-store deals, plus there might be a coupon if you ask the right person (Rob- fly fishing manger!)


     Just a few more special things coming up at Orvis NYC over the next week.

     Today I was able to try on the new Silver Sonic waders. It features Orvis sonic welding technology, these are not stiched and sealed, the seams are welded watertight shut. It also features the convertible top which goes from chest to waist high without taking the straps off. You can see a video on it below the bad picture of me modeling the waders.
