Background

The Orvis Company celebrates its 150th anniversary in the US this year (and its 25th in the UK!)

Founded by Charles F. Orvis in Manchester, Vermont, US in 1856, The Orvis Company specialises in fine quality fly-fishing tackle, shooting clothing and accessories, traditional country clothing and unique gifts for the country home.

In 1981, Orvis started a mail order business in the UK based at a converted water mill in Nether Wallop, Hampshire after taking over the successful 'Dermot Wilson' fly-fishing tackle business on Mr Wilson's retirement. Since then, the business has blossomed and the expansion has included the opening of 17 full price and 2 outlet retail stores in the UK with a move to larger HQ and distribution premises in Andover, Hampshire. Orvis is now the largest, truly authentic, specialist country living retailer in the UK with an exciting and unique product offer available from its retail stores, mail order catalogue and website.
