In gear closets, shelves, sheds, and mudrooms across the world are Orvis heirlooms

held onto by Orvis Associates, guides, and brand fans alike. Handed down, coveted, and lovingly cared for, these icons of decade-old fishing adventures, cross-country road trips, paddling missions, and shoreline dog walks hold the memory of our experiences and weave a storyline that evolves from one generation to the next.

My Grandfather Leigh Perkins gave me this Orvis bamboo rod built in the 1940s.

It’s the same rod his mother gave him, and when he cast it for the first time, he knew he wanted to go work for Orvis. And he did, growing the business for over 40 years, which is a history still in the making. Today this rod tells the tale of a passion handed down through four generations, as I share with my kids what it means, what it stands for, and what it inspires—because one day it, both the rod and the legacy, will be theirs.

Orvis President, Simon Perkins

The third generation of the Perkins family to lead the company, Simon is a former fly-fishing and wingshooting guide, and devoted father and husband.

“This rod tells the tale of a passion handed down through four generations.”

In this spirit, we’ve curated a collection of gifts we hope you’ll love and use in creating your own memories—and when the time is right, hand down to family or friends, so that the story may continue on.
