If you have not yet made plans for Saturday, July 20, the Maryland Chapter of Trout Unlimited invites you to a very unique *free* event, the MDTU Orvis Silver Sonic Trunk Show. This will be one of the rare opportunities in which women will be able to actually try on one of the 13 distinct sizes of the Orvis Silver Sonic Wader. Men..don't dismay, there will be plenty for you too!I If you are a woman (or know a woman) who enjoys fishing and being in the water, but have discovered (or heard her say) that finding a comfortable pair of waders is a challenge, you are not alone. We all know what it's like to wear waders in which the feet are too big... or the crotch is to low ..or they won't fit your hips or bust...or all of the above. This is an issue that women have been talking about for years and it seems as though the ladies have finally been heard! The folks at Orvis have taken every thought and concern into consideration and have created a line of waders that will fit women of all sizes. The Maryland Chapter of Trout Unlimited has teamed up with Great Feathers to bring to our area, a unique opportunity to find a pair waders to fit your body type; The Orvis Women's Silver Sonic Trunk Show. The Orvis Women's Silver Sonic Waders feature a completely revamped line of sizes, developed by product developers who worked with 22 women at the Orvis offices, along with nearly as many field testers around the country. More than a year's worth of design and seven different fittings went into producing a comprehensive range of sizes for women of all shapes. All 13 sizes will be available to try on during the event. Find your Perfect Wader!! In addition to finding your Perfect Wader, there will be two Orvis Fishing 101 Classes, a casting class (bring your rod), a lecture on how to not waste time gearing up, a raffle for a guided day on the Gunpowder, and a 10% discount on ALL items at Great Feathers (I know you've been eyeing that Hardy rod) and future guided days on the Gunpowder. While it may appear this day is just for the ladies, it is not. Men are welcome to the classes, the raffle and giveaways, as well the discounts on gear and guiding. This is also the perfect opportunity to introduce a young lady or man to the sport and the beautiful places it takes us. Proceeds from the day's event will benefit the Maryland Chapter of Trout Unlimited. All ladies in attendance will receive a free one-year membership to Trout Unlimited (new members).
