Ever fancied fly fishing? This July, female fly-fishing experts from Orvis US are heading to the UK to offer their unparalleled instruction and share their passion for the sport during a whole week of fly-fishing events for ladies.
Take up a new hobby or build upon existing fly-fishing experience with three ladies events taking place at Orvis UK stores, including Stockbridge, London and Burford, on 15, 16 and 17 July 2014.
The Orvis Ladies, Jackie, Christine and Laurie, are at the cutting-edge of women’s fly-fishing and are keen to promote it to their female peers across the pond. While there has been a surge of interest in fly-fishing in the US, The Orvis Ladies Roadshow hopes to encourage more women in the UK to get involved in this wonderful field sport (as are team Simple Things).
The ladies from the US not only teach but also play a huge role in Orvis’ product development, designing the future technical fishing range for women: clothing that fits and works with the female form.
Choose between a morning and afternoon session in Stockbridge, London or Burford, learn to cast and pick up the basic skills needed to get started. No experience is necessary, but established fishers are also welcome.

Look out for a feature on fly fishing in the August issue of The Simple Things (on sale 30 July 2014).
