The Orvis Fly-Fishing Guide by Tom Rosenbauer

Great Feathers will be hosting the FREE Orvis 101 Class here at the shop (14824 York Rd. Sparks, MD 21152) on Friday May 24th, and Saturdays June 8th and June 15th at 9:00am. We will also be hosting the Orvis 201 Class at 5:00pm on June 22nd.

If you aren’t familiar with the Orvis 101 class (, it is a basic intro to getting you on the water with ease by learning knots and casting. This class consists of two parts: 30 minutes of casting instruction and 30 minutes of rigging. We will show how to put together a rod outfit, the basic knots needed to get started, and appropriate casts for local waters.

For the 201 section, we will apply the knowledge learned in the 101 class in actual fishing use on a local pond. We will show how to approach water, what to look for before and during fishing and how to play and land fish. This class costs a fee of $50. No fishing license required!
Every person who takes the class will receive a free membership with Trout Unlimted and The Federation of Fly Fishers as well as an Orvis coupon for $25 off an Orvis purchase of $50 or more (to be used the same day as the class).

Class sizes are limited and we will accept people on a first come, first serve basis so schedule today!
