Choose an Adventure with Orvis Travel and Get a Free T3 Rod

In case there weren't enough excuses to pack your bags already, Orvis Travel will give a free T3 fly rod to every couple who books a vacation to the Caribbean for travel between July 1 and December 1, 2004, a minimum value of $575.

Choose Your Adventure. Orvis Travel destinations in the Caribbean are perfect for the couple or group of friends looking for world-class flyfishing, azure waters, tropical breezes, and more. Fish the renowned bonefish flats at Tiamo, on South Andros Island in the Bahamas. Non-fishing members of your party can enjoy the exotic ecosystem via kayak or snorkeling. It's all included in the eco-friendly resort.

Enjoy gourmet food and extensive bonefish and permit possibilities at Kamalame Cay on Andros Island in the Bahamas. The resort is known for its local expertise and intuitive guides, who have an uncanny ability to sight fish at great distances.

Already fished the Bahamas? Visit the exquisite Victoria House in Belize, with over 200 square miles of prime flats fishing, plus newly renovated colonial-style rooms and gardens. Or find your adventure at Turneffe Flats, also in Belize. The abundance of bonefish, permit, and tarpon make Turneffe Flats one of just a few places in the world that offer a legitimate shot at a grand slam - bonefish, permit, and tarpon all in the same day.

When to go? According to Orvis Travel Managing Director Dave Parker, "October or November are great times to go, with hurricane season over and winter tourists yet to arrive. However, July is famous for catching a grand slam."

Book any weeklong trip to a Caribbean destination for travel from July 1 through December 1, 2004, and receive a T3 fly rod, compliments of Orvis Travel. Orvis' T3, made from high-modulus graphite, represents the pinnacle of fly rod technology, and has received numerous awards for design and performance. Orvis Travel also offers a 15% discount on all Orvis products from the time a deposit is placed through the start date of the vacation.
