Previously only open to Orvis-endorsed fly fishing guides, the 28th Annual Orvis Guide Rendezvous will be open to all professional fishing guides for the first time this year.
This three day event offers guides the opportunity to network and compare notes as well as take part in many different seminars covering boat and vehicle safety, social media tips, casting workshops, and habitat preservation. This year’s event will be held from April 3-5, 2014 in Missoula, Montana.
“Missoula is once more the host of the Rendezvous. With its strong fly-fishing culture, collegiate atmosphere and outdoors heritage, “Zootown” is the perfect stage for a gathering of guides.”
The event will be capped off on Saturday April 5, 2014, with the “Down the Hatch” fly-fishing festival. The festival, which is open to the public, is a celebration of the fly-fishing sport and its newly energized culture.
“After the business part of the Rendezvous, join us on Saturday, April 5, 2014 for a celebration worthy of Montana’s fly-fishing culture. The entire town of Missoula – and anyone else who cares to join in – is invited to the Down the Hatch festival at Caras Park. While fly fishing was once the province of tweedy old guys smoking pipes and sipping Scotch, it has been energized in the past decade with a strong youth movement.”
