Orvis Milwaukee

Orvis Milwaukee



Those of you who are local and have enjoyed reading some of my rather enigmatic wandering prose and thoughts will be able to visit me at the Milwaukee Orvis store at the Bayshore Mall. I will be the fishing manager, and responsible for outreach and everything outdoors or fly-fishing related. That includes classes, seminars, etc. Perhaps a reading of a short story...


The store opens May 15th. Come say ‘Hi.’

Being employed full-time and running a business on the side will no doubt leave me with less time for blogging and writing, but I hope that quality instead of quantity will suffice for the future. Meanwhile, I have submitted an entry to the Robert Traver fly-fishing writing award from Fly Rod and Reel magazine. Wish me luck! I hope “Hop on Pop” is not already entered…

Congratulations, Erik! I've been wondering if you were offered the position for the last week or so. I hope you enjoy it. I'll be at BayShore on May 16th to give a presentation during Erehwon's Outdoor Adventure Expo. I'll have to see if I can sneak over to see you.

Erik,
I heard through the grapevine that you are starting a new career. I just want to wish you the best of luck in you new endeavor.

Congratulations, So when are you going to put a Spey Clave together? since Rob Estlund stopped doing Speydays, you Milwaukee Boys have dropped the ball!!!!!!

Spey Clave... Hmmm...

Now that Orvis is back in the game with the new Helios switch and spey rods, there may be an opportunity in Fall of this year. Givin the talent here from Skagit to longer bellies, etc. We may not even need to import any outside experts. I am sure that Orvis would welcome the idea. ;)
