Welcome to the 2015 Missoula Orvis Guide Rendezvous
April 23-25, 2015
Block out the dates on your calendar—the Orvis Guide Rendezvous (open to all guides) and the Down the Hatch Fishing Festival (open to all fishy folk) is returning to Missoula, Montana.
The event begins with an Orvis Endorsed Owners/Manager meeting Thursday, April 23rd from 8AM to 4PM at The Holiday Inn Missoula Downtown. If that is you, please join us for this full day of presentations, and workshops.
Thursday evening Orvis will a hosted cocktail party at the Holiday Inn Downtown for ALL attending the OGR conference (All Guides, Outfitters and Lodges welcome). Friday the 24th brings a day of guide conferences, an evening cocktail party followed by a banquet dinner —networking central (All Guides, Outfitters and Lodges welcome). Saturday the 25th wraps the guide conference and brings on the “Down the Hatch” Fly-Fishing Festival and the Orvis Film Fest. All within walking distance of the Holiday Inn Downtown. Take advantage of screaming deals on gear, network like crazy, attend workshops, join best practice discussions, and enjoy both good times and—you’ve been waiting for it—free beer.
Join us after the work sessions for Saturday’s Down the Hatch Fishing Festival in Caras Park, on the banks of the Clark Fork River. Vendors from across the industry will be eager to show off their latest and greatest; take the opportunity to meet up with your buddies for food, beer and live music. As dusk falls, drift over to the historic Wilma Theatre for the 3rd Annual Orvis Film Fest (and the awesome raffle within). Tired of guiding other folks? We’re giving away a host of guided trips – for one day, you could end up fishing at the bow instead of stuck on the oars.
Make sure to touch base with our OGR and Down the Hatch Partners, Friends and Supporters for event special offers. We look forward to seeing you in Zootown!
