Zambuni PR organised a recent press day on the Orvis beat of the famous River Test in Hampshire. A collection of my fellow journalists and anglers braved the extreme conditions early on and were rewarded with some healthy brown and rainbow trout which were all returned. We also got to try out some of the latest Orvis rods and reels, with a particular favourite combination of mine being a 6# 9' Orvis Recon fly rod matched with an Orvis Access reel.
You can read all about the day and see some of my photos in the Zambuni blog entry below...
Come Rain or Shine
Standing under the thatched roof of the Orvis fishing hut, we watched as the heavens opened and the biblical rain poured. Down on the Kimbridge beat on the River Test, we stood there wondering if our guests would take one look out of their window and climb back into the safety of bed or, worse, the office.
