Orvis Releases Fly Fishing Reports Web Site That Covers Over 100 of the Best Fly Fishing Locations in North America

MANCHESTER, VT--(Marketwire - June 10, 2009) - One of the more disappointing things that can happen when planning a fishing trip is to arrive at your location for the weekend only to find that the river conditions are lousy. If only you could have known that just a few miles away conditions are perfect and the fish are biting. Thanks to The Orvis Company and its extensive guide network, now you can do just that.

Fly fishers can now instantly discover what mayflies are hatching on Penn's Creek, how the redfishing is on Texas' Gulf Coast, the best flies to take to the Yellowstone River, or water conditions for steelhead fishing on the Deschutes in Oregon. Unlike other fishing location web sites, where the last update was made in 2005 or the site relies upon amateur reporters who get tired of updating conditions after a month, Fly Fishing Reports and Conditions (www.orvis.com/fishingreports), sponsored by Orvis, employs professional guides who spend all day on the water and are required to update conditions every week.

Freshwater and saltwater locations are thoroughly covered, from flow rates to tide charts to the techniques that are working each week. Water temperatures, weather reports, water clarity, best stretches to fish, and best places to access the water are updated regularly. Fly fishers can instantly find out what rod, line, leader, and flies to bring so they'll be ready to fish when they arrive, with no surprises. The internet has been the best fly-fishing tool ever for the traveling fly fisher -- finally someone has taken advantage of its power and immediacy as only Orvis' vast network can do.

Founded in 1856, and the recognized world leader in fly fishing gear, Orvis operates a chain of retail stores in the U.S. and England, manages a world class fly fishing vacations service, and runs numerous fly fishing schools around the country. Orvis donates five percent of pre-tax profits each year to conservation efforts. You can read more about Orvis on their website at www.orvis.com.
