From Taryn & Shyanne

Thank you for choosing the Flexform Glove to be a part of your next adventure. 

This collaboration is rooted in our shared love of nature and the countless hours we’ve spent fly fishing around the world. As two women in the outdoor industry, we’ve forged our own paths by connecting with what is most important to us and encouraging others to do the same.


Whether we’re exploring our own backyards or venturing into the unknown, we are continually inspired by the beauty of the earth. Wherever that beauty takes you, we hope you’ll stay in touch and share your journey along the way.


Now get out there, glove up, and find your FRDM.


Meet Shyanne Orvis

We're thrilled to collaborate with Brand Ambassador Shyanne Orvis for our recent launch of the FLEXFORM GLOVE. Shyanne's passion for the outdoors is evident through her unwavering commitment to educating and inspiring the fly fishing community. That passion is one of many things that drew FRDM to Shyanne, and eventually the Flexform collaboration was born. We sat down with Shyanne to talk about all things fishing, which inevitably led to talk about life, motherhood, and more.

“The FLEXFORM glove is the perfect lightweight glove addition for any outdoor enthusiast. The breathable fabric, combined with the UPF 50, makes it ideal for those summer exploration days. The suede on the index finger minimizes burn when stripping and casting the fly line. After spending years searching for a glove that would protect and perform, I can finally say I’ve found my new favorite.”

FRDM with Shyanne Orvis

A Behind-the-Scenes Q&A

FRDM: What are your roots in fly fishing? Where did it all begin

Shyanne: I spent the majority of my childhood in Michigan, chasing salmon and steelhead with my parents. They were avid conventional anglers, so all my early memories in life include a pink barbie rod and countless hours spent on the water. It wasn't until my teenage years that I picked up fly fishing and once I did, there was no looking back.

FRDM: When did you get into guiding and why did you choose that career path?

Shyanne: I actually started guiding a lot sooner than I anticipated. I had only spent a few years on my local rivers when a friend of mine shared a newspaper clipping of a job opening as a fly shop associate. I applied for it thinking it would be a great opportunity to learn and be surrounded by other passionate anglers. A few months into the season, my co-workers and boss encouraged me to step into guiding, and after only a few trips I knew it was what I’m meant to do. It's a beautiful experience to connect with people and share the thing you love the most.

FRDM: Do you have any tips for people who are just getting started in fly fishing?

Shyanne: Fly fishing isn't an easy sport to learn. There's a lot of different variables and it tends to be a little overwhelming for people just getting started. It's important to utilize your local fly shop and their knowledge on gear, flies, and the fisheries near you. When you do get out on the water make sure you slow down. Read the water, notice the bugs, maybe you'll see a few fish feeding. Take a moment to really absorb everything around you. You'll catch a lot more fish by not rushing the process.

FRDM: You recently became a mother, how has this shifted your perspective on life and even fly fishing?

Shyanne: Becoming a mother has made me realize the importance of having and maintaining your passion. Being a parent is beautiful, but also really hard. Now more than ever, fly fishing helps keeps me grounded. Motherhood has also taught me the importance of introducing my son to the things I love. I've already incorporated him into a few of my adventures, but I can't wait to truly immerse him in these experiences. Our world is evolving rapidly and It's so important for kids to play and explore. Hopefully time spent outdoors will inspire the next generation to protect what makes it so special. 

FRDM: We are so excited about this collaboration. What inspired you to help create the Flexform glove

Shyanne: I'm really grateful for this opportunity! It's been years in the making and I can't believe we are finally bringing this vision to life. We’ve created a glove that was meant for withstanding harsh sun, biting bugs, line burn, and handling toothy critters. I wanted a glove that could do it all. From targeting Trout in the mountains and rowing the Colorado river, to chasing Tarpon in the keys and huge Peacock Bass in the jungle. This glove will go everywhere with me.

As an ambassador for FRDM, I look forward to even more adventures with my FRDM products. With FRDM gloves, I don't have to worry about the outside elements preventing me from pursing my passion, and I don’t have to sacrifice performance and warmth. I'm excited to partner with a brand that shares the same appreciation for the outdoors. With FRDM alongside me, I'm able to further my career as a fly fishing guide, continue mentoring with Fish For Change, and inspire aspiring anglers while staying authentic to the things I love."
