Casting in the park

Marina started free ‘casting in the park’ sessions with Orvis when she lived in London.  Casting in the park is the perfect opportunity to get introduced to fishing in your lunch break.  Get away from the office for your lunch break, learn how to cast on dry land, meet new friends and find out more about the sport. Orvis supply the equipment for free.
