Orvis Currents -  A Live Online Speaker Series
Currents on the surface of water.

Experts and guides who inspire us all. Sharing their knowledge, telling their stories.

Every month, we’ll sit down with friends in fly fishing, wingshooting, and outdoor adventure whose voices have historically been underrepresented in their fields. We invite you to engage with us, ask questions, and join the conversation.
