I'd like to go - is anyone bringing a boat & can take a passenger?

Going to have to drop out. My dog had emergency spinal surgery yesterday, & I'm home alone - meaning I'll have to be with her during her recuperation.

Some thoughts:
1. Reviews of this line at orvis.com are overwhelmingly positive. No comments on sinking.
2. You could talk to Orvis online (online chat option) to see what they know.
3. Orvis is really good about customer satisfaction. If you bring it to the Westheimer store, I'll bet they'll replace it immediately if you ask.

Puck, do you have room for a third? Or do I need to look elsewhere for a ride?

General Discussion / Orvis Happy Hour switched to Wednesday?
« on: March 16, 2015, 08:50:37 AM »
I've confirmed that the Orvis Happy Hours are now scheduled for every other Wednesday. This makes it much more difficult for me to attend. Is there anyone else who'd prefer to see it return to Thursdays?

I've worked a 15' sinking line extension on the end of my floating line. Not the greatest results (yet), but I've found that I can get the line in the air with about 15-20' of line in the water, and a more vertical backcast. It might require a false cast or two, but it works...

I've been searching, but do not see any information on this year's beginner fly tying class. What's happening with it?
