Great if only fish 10 times a year

Originally posted at www.orvis.com on Jan 2, 2024
I have owned 3 different pairs of these boots,because affordable and comfortable, but all 3 pairs literally fall apart after about 30 trips,which is maybe 3 months for me. The stitching disintegrated in exactly same spots,bought at Sportsman's so Orvis wasn't available for help.

I'm an intermediate angler with little knowledge of equipment. Rylyn was very responsive to all my questions, even the ones I thought were stupid. Very open about what he does and how he is paid. I highly recommend him.

I bought an open box Orvis fishing rod and it was at a great price. The condition of the rod and the shipping time exceeded my expectations. The information I received from Capt. Mark was accurate and helpful. I would definitely buy from Curated again.

I wanted to purchase gifts for my husband and son as they are slowly getting into fly fishing. Matt was really helpful in taking a look at what they already have and made excellent recommendations on what they need. I cannot wait to look like a superhero and see the joy on my son’s face with a big thanks to Matt!!

Helped me with some valuable fly fishing knowledge that I lack coming from the conventional fishing world. Hooked me up with a good starter rod and even price matched it with another company. Will be coming back for a reel soon.
