Photos: The Orvis Pond Wakes Up


My first rainbow of the year chased down my PT as I stripped it across the deepest part of the pond.

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.


The webcam on the building even captured me fighting a trout.

This little largemouth has a taste for sinking nymphs. . . .
