It’s no mystery why our colleague Sam Brown, a financial analyst, likes to fish with head of Orvis Rod & Tackle Shawn “Diddy” Combs. Each spring, Sam goes on a float trip with Diddy, and over the past three years he’s caught his biggest fish of the season on that trip. Yesterday, he landed the fish above while banging the banks with a Hawkins Triple Double during high water. See his past fish below.

So when do I get to fish with Shawn?


Sam’s 2013 beastie brown ate a Hendrickson dry fly.

Sam’s first-ever 20+-inch trout came on Opening Day of 2012.

  1. Sign Sam up to work with Diddy. He could prepare gross margin analysis for new Superfine Glass designs.
