Photo of the Day: Orvis Intern Sets Vermont State Record?

On Thursday evening after work, Orvis marketing intern Ian Conde experienced an epic fishing moment. Stalking a beautiful trout stream in the Green Mountains of Vermont, he spotted a shadow moving in the distance. With a perfectly timed cast, Ian dropped his trusty Prince Nymph with precision in front of the elusive fish, and Smack! A donnybrook ensued, as the fish greyhounded across the pool. Using all his angling skills, Ian was able to finally get the beast to the net. Could this be a Vermont state record?

  1. My wife and I were there that day. It was gorgeous! We were in heaven! But remember, big things come in small packages. A gorgeous day and a gorgeous place produce gorgeous fish – no matter the size!

  2. Haha! I, myself, have wrestled these brutes off Kelly Stand! With the barb flattened, it’s even more of a challenge. My compliments to Ian. Did you need to use Icy-Hot on your arms when you returned home?
