We're an Orvis Endorsed Outfitter

Mossy Creek Fly Fishing has been an Orvis Endorsed Outfitter since 2013. We are the first and only independent fly shop in Virginia to be part of the coveted Orvis-Endorsed Operations program. The Orvis story (over 150 years and running) is steeped in fly fishing and other outdoor sporting traditions. It counts among its efforts the conservation and restoration of fly fishing habitat and species sustainability. Like Orvis, we are dedicated to ensuring everyone has the opportunity to enjoy all that fly fishing has to offer.

So, What's an Orvis Endorsed Outfitter?

Over two decades ago, Orvis sought out the best fishing operations in the most exceptional fishing areas of North America. The result was the Orvis-Endorsed Opearations program for lodges, guides, outfitters, and expeditions. All share the same high standards: great service, great fishing, and an experienced, professional staff. These standards of excellence are continually reviewed by the Orvis staff and evaluated by visiting guests in post-visit critiques sent directly to Orvis. We’re proud to be one of a select group of trusted operations.
