- Orvis has announced its goal to increase the number of women in fly-fishing. By the year 2020 they have a goal of 50-percent participation, an ambitious goal given women currently make up just 30 percent of anglers. “In order to hit it, Orvis, in addition to launching a new line of gear, is spearheading an array of initiatives designed to welcome women into one of the most male-dominated outdoor sports.” Via Outside Online.
