One of the many great things about working at the Orvis Mothership here in Sunderland, Vermont, is the sweet little pond we have on the property. Nothing beats spending a few minutes at lunchtime—or. . .cough. . .not lunchtime—casting a fly in a beautiful setting. The pond has some rainbows and largemouth bass, which will sometimes even eat. Today was the first day I’ve walked around the pond this spring, and I managed to land a few sweet ‘bows and even one accidental bass, which at a Beadhead Pheasant Tail Nymph. In a few weeks, it’ll be time to throw some Sneaky Petes for those fish.
Remember, you can always check the Orvis Careers page if you have a hankering to live in this beautiful place.
