Orvis Cherry Creek
New gear and free beer! Come see us in the Cherry Creek shop for a weekend of special fishing events. Check out the new Orvis clothing line, listen to Colorado river guides, and have some local beers on the house!
Denver, CO—The Orvis Company, world leader in fly fishing and purveyor of the Distinctive Country Lifestyle, will host its annual spring gear release and angler education weekend on April 22–23. This in-store event features the new 2017 Orvis clothing line, updated fly fishing supplies, and guest speakers on Colorado’s many river systems. Whether you’re a seasoned angler or a brand new bird’s-nester, you’re sure to pick up some excellent river tips.
The spring is a great time to bone up on your fishing skills — come learn from some of Colorado’s best river guides. Breckenridge Outfitters, North Park Anglers, and Sunrise Anglers will share their love of fly fishing and offer advice on where to fish, what to use, and when to go. They’ll also talk about guided trips they offer on private and public water. If you’re tired of the mud season, a stillwater presentation on April 23 should keep you busy until the stream flows come down.
Orvis Cherry Creek is a proud partner with Casting for Recovery — a unique retreat program that combines breast cancer education with the therapeutic sport of fly fishing. Visit their table to learn more about a truly inspirational cause. Thanks to the conservation efforts of Nature’s Educators, the event also includes real live birds of prey — a trout’s worst nightmare. They’ll discuss the role that they play in our ecosystem. Continuing Orvis’ commitment to the well being of dogs, Canine Companions for Independence will be in the store as well.
The Orvis Fly Fishing 101 course will be offered for free on both event days —everything you’ve ever wanted to know about knots, rigging equipment, and basic casting. Don’t forget to register on the Cherry Creek Orvis website. And, check out local Denver artist Cody Richardson’s one-of-a-kind trout artwork — he’ll be building cool creations from scratch!
If that’s not enough, then just stop by for free Denver Beer Co. Pretzel Assassin or Incredible Pedal IPA. Enjoy the event and make some new fishing friends!
