Join us for the U.S. Orvis ladies fly-fishing team to celebrate women in fly fishing
The Orvis Ladies Fly Fishing Roadshow
At Orvis, we believe that fishing connects people. Many of our staff keep three-weight rods at their desks for lunchtime fishing breaks, and wear Trout Bum blouses to office meetings. We are a blend of the seasoned and the new, freshwater anglers and those who love saltwater, the young and the old. Fly fishing is the common thread that connects us all, and we are always excited to share our passion with other women.
Jackie joined Orvis in 2006 as a Production Manager in the Advertising Department. In 2011, she became an Associate Art Director of the Women's catalogues. Since then, Jackie has done both the creative and production design on the UK Women's catalogues. In 2011, she was introduced to fly fishing and immediately fell in love with the sport. “I love the form of the cast and how humbled the sport can make you feel. I love being outdoors, no matter what the weather. Lastly, I love how many amazing people I've met and new friends I've made through fly fishing,” she notes.
Chrissy has been fly fishing since 2006. She was first handed a fly rod in the parking lot of an Orvis Outlet and there’s been no looking back since. She started working for the Orvis Company selling fly-fishing gear in one of their retail stores and now works with the creative folks in Rod & Tackle as their Merchandise Coordinator and Analyst. In her down time (when she’s not stalking carp or attempting perfect drifts to trout), she’s teaching Fly Fishing 101 courses at the local store, volunteering with her Trout Unlimited chapter, or chasing after her two English Setters.
Laurie has been with Orvis for 14 years. Most of that time has been spent working with the UK Division, including becoming the Director of Multi-Channel Merchandising in 2009. Being an eighth-generation Vermonter, there is a lot of emphasis put on being an avid outdoor enthusiast. Surrounded by all the outdoors has to offer, including growing up on the locally famous Roaring Branch section of the Walloomsac River, Laurie grew up fishing and spending time attending beagle trials with her parents. Today she spends her fishing season, with over 30 days logged in 2013, in search of the perfect fishing spot with her 10-year-old son Charles.
