Orvis CEO Perk Perkins recently embarked on a week-long backpacking trip into the Wind River Range of Wyoming with his wife, Laurie, and their Black Lab, Chico. Perk’s goal was to catch his first golden trout, and he certainly succeeded. They took to the trail outside the town of Dubois, guided by George Hunker of Sweetwater Fishing Expeditions.
Perk scans the water for fish, while Chico waits patiently.
The gorgeous, wild golden trout were worth the long hikes above 9,000 feet.
