Orvis Revives Rod Swap

Here is a chance to clean out that fly rod closet that the wife keeps nagging you about. Well sort of anyway... Orvis has announced that between now and July 1st you can donate any old rod to the Orvis Rod Swap and get 25% off a new Zero Gravity, T3, Superfine, or Tls Power Matrix fly rod. Donated tackle will go to the Boy and Girl Scouts or other deserving youth organizations.

Back in my early years at Orvis in the mid-1970s, the Rod Swap was an annual event, awaited by kids and Orvis customers alike. In the 1980s and 90s, rod sales grew faster than we could produce our rods (you can only produce quality hand built rods so quickly). So, we discontinued the Rod Swap. We didn't want to disappoint customers with back orders. With a strong inventory of certain rod series this year, we're happy to revive this popular event. So take advantage of the special savings and help a kid go fishing!
