Mary Orvis Marbury

Daughter of Charles Orvis, is celebrated to this day as a result of her devotion to the fly by compiling and editing Favorite Flies and Their Histories, first published in 1892. This book was the first to standardize fly patterns in America and how to fish them.  Mary is also considered the woman that opened the door into fly fishing to other women.
