View Full Version : Orvis Days - March 11th/ Orvis Tent Sale March 16- 18
03-02-00, 09:01 PM
Orvis Days is Saturday March 11th. Many speakers, including Jimmy Jacobs, will be speaking throughout the day. I think that there will be some specials deals too.
The tent sale is the weekend of March 16th - 18th. Last year it was held at the Gwinnett Civic Center. I don't know anymore than that. Will post when I know more.

Thanks alot. Since Owl doesn't have a job but likes to throw line, I'll have to get there early. Yes, it is at the Gwinnett Civic Center. Starts on Friday, 17 March. Work has me in Ohio that week and I wasn't scheduled to come back until Friday PM. The red eye it is for me.
For those who did not partake last year, you do not want to pass this one up. All orvis gear is on sale, not just fishing. Hel*, my wife, who does not fish, spent more money than I did and even went back to get more. When the VISA bill arrived, she had to gall to ask me what new rod I bought. When I reminded her of the sale, She simply said "Just getting even"
**** , I love my wife.

Whoa! Missed the sale last year....got there today! @mm neoprene waders for $10.00! About 300.00 worth of Fly tying stuff for $25.00! Wife and daughter stocked up on clothes! Managed to NOT buy another reel, Old Man! Vortexes for around 300 and Odyessy IV's for ~ 130.00! Can't wait til next year!

Didn't you all [b]love[/] $1 for fly tying stuff - and the fact that mirage tippet was considered fly tying????
Hey! I had to pay $2 for my Mirage tippet! http://www.georgia-outdoors.com/ubbngto/smile.gif
Oh well, a heck of a lot cheaper than $10.
KB, don't feel cheated a friend of mine went Saturday and paid $3.00 for Mirage. Best deal that I heard of was a guy bought (2) 10wt tridents (for the Hooch?) reg. $470.00 each for $250.00 each and a Vortex reg. $615.00 for $307.00. I saw his receipt.
The best was the $1.00 tying bins.
Had to see this thing for myself. Same problem as the Primer. It's tough to rifle through bin after bin of fly tying materials with two kids and try to keep them in line. So I just said the hell with it and let them run amok. I had stuff to get.
I'll be there Friday morning next year. Alone.
