Snow’s Gone, Back on the Lawn

Like the arrival of the first robins, one sure sign of spring is the reappearance of Orvis Rod & Tackle product developers out on the lawn here at Orvis HQ to test-cast new fly rods and lines. This morning, I was heartened to see Steve Hemkens, Divisional Merchandising Manager for Rod & Tackle, and Vice Chairman Dave Perkins throwing some saltwater sticks, so I grabbed the iPhone to shoot a little video. You may have to turn up the volume to hear Steve talk over the wind, and we had to crank up the music when talk turned to company secrets. And in case you ever wondered if the folks who run this company can cast, this ought to remove any doubt.
