The magnitude of the flooding in southern Texas and Lousiana has shocked the nation, but we are also heartened by the bravery and dedication of both first-responders and private citizens who are working diligently to help those in need. With so much water on the ground, the need for raingear, waders, and wading boots is far outstripping availability. Our San Antonio store has been outfitting as many people as possible, but the need is greater than we can supply.
So we are asking anyone who has extra rain jacket or pair of waders and boots to ship them to:
ATTN: Landon Rowlett
Park North Shopping Center
7427 San Pedro Ave., Suite 104
San Antonio, TX 78216
All items will be distributed to rescue personnel in affected areas.
We also invite you to join Orvis in supporting vital relief work by making a donation to one of these organizations:
- The American Red Cross
- Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund (establish by Houston mayor Sylvester Turner)
- United Way of Greater Houston
- Or the charity of your choice. Here’s a good list of options from NPR.

Thanks Orvis. I hope all other major fishing outfitters will follow suit…Simms, LL Bean, Redington, etc.
Please don’t forget that Houston is just one part of the Texas coast. We all fish and hunt.
