Orvis Chairman Leigh H. Perkins–father of our current CEO, Perk, and Vice Chairman, Dave–is fishing today off the Florida Panhandle today with Capt. David Mangum of Shallow Water Expeditions, and he landed this beauty a few hours ago. It’s the largest redfish he’s ever caught, and at 89 years old, LHP (as he is affectionately known at the company) still fishes and hunts more than 200 days per year. As Mangum wrote, “He still puts the fly right where it needs to go.” I guess that’s pretty obvious.
