This past Friday night (November 14) the Little Girl and I went over to the new Avalon shopping center off Old Milton Parkway in Alpharetta to attend the Orvis Alpharetta store's grand opening party. They had quite the turnout, that little shop was absolutely packed with folks celebrating the new store. With the barbecue sandwiches, beer from Sweetwater Brewery and classic country music from Whiskey Belt, a good time was practically guaranteed. If you're in the vicinity of Alpharetta and you're into Orvis' clothing, then this is definitely the store for you! Lots of apparel and accessories to suit the sporting lifestyle. The back of the store (or front, depending on which entrance you use) is dedicated to fly fishing gear. It's probably not the largest fly fishing selection in an Orvis store, but they certainly stock the essentials. As far as the hunting gear goes, you're probably going to be directed to a catalog as it didn't seem like there was enough room in the store to stock any of it.
I wish them success in their latest location. In my opinion, you can never have too many fly shops! If you're in the neighborhood, drop by and check them out.
Tight lines and happy shopping,
