Video: Celebrate Moms and Help Support Casting for Recovery

Little Pippa—daughter of Simon Perkins, vice president of creative and brand marketing, and his wife, Els Van Woert—has already been featured on this blog. Born into a sporting family, she’s already spent plenty of time on the field, and she clearly loves it.

To kick off our celebration of Mother’s Day, here’s a beautiful video that features Els and Pippa stalking trout on a Montana spring creek. For Els, motherhood isn’t just a state of being. It’s a journey, filled with small adventures along the way to a life well-lived with family. And Pippa’s reaction to a close encounter with a trout is sure to make you smile.

With every share of this video with the tag #LongLiveMoms, Orvis will donate $1 (up to $10,000) to Casting For Recovery. CFR enhances the quality of life of women with breast cancer through a unique retreat program that combines breast cancer education and peer support with the therapeutic sport of fly fishing.

Here’s to moms everywhere!

  1. Why does’t the baby have eye protection on? A hook on even on a small fly could blind her in one eye & with S–‘s law, even in 2 eyes. Accidents can & will happen!

    1. I forgot to note that the baby had sunglasses in her hands. However, it seems as though she can easily remove them, allowing “S–‘s Law” to occur.
