If you’re a fly-angler, then you know about Orvis. They sell top-of-line gear. And it’s really expensive. But if you’ve been planning on buying a new fly combo then check out their latest deal. Order a new Helios or Hydro rod (around $750!!) and get a free Battenkill reel worth about $260. Here’s a link to their site: http://bit.ly/aqgziA
I’ve used an Orvis 5-weight fly rod and Battenkill Reel for nearly 14 years and love the combo. It’s well balanced, the rod loads well and casts great in smaller streams. Even though it performs great, Orvis gear is pricey.
Here’s how the promo works (according to an email from Orvis):
“Just put one of the rods listed above in your shopping cart and add any Battenkill Reel of your choice. The reel price will show up as $0 at checkout. It’s that simple to save up to $259 on your new outfit. Price on qualifying rod/reel packages reflects the free reel. Don’t delay as this offer ends Monday, May 31, 2010 at midnight ET.”
