Video: Watch Pippa’s First Trout and Help Support Casting for Recovery

Young Pippa—daughter of Simon Perkins, Senior Manager of Orvis Adventures and Hunting, 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.

Here’s a beautiful video that features Els and Pippa stalking trout on a Montana spring creek. As you’ll see, Pippa has a wonderful close encounter with a wild brown.

With Mother’s Day right around the corner, help us celebrate Moms and keep them outdoors for years to come. Share this video with the tag #LongLiveMoms, and for each share, we’ll make a $1 donation—up to $10,000—to Casting for Recovery. It’s a great way to celebrate moms everywhere.

  1. I always admire Orvis. They give back and support good causes like Casting for Recovery and TU. Keep up the good work.

  2. Love everything about this! As a mother of a 2 year old and soon a newborn this hits the heart. We are fly fishing addicts and couldn’t imagine not having our children grow up without it. Thumbs up to mom, Pippa, Orvis and CFR!!

    1. Guessing the baby pulled off the sunglasses mid cast. Not taking a baby out fly fishing and connecting with nature is irresponsible and dangerous.

  3. I agree with start em young, babies don’t always keep their glasses on and you can’t expect them to. The slim chance of being harmed by a fly doesn’t out weigh the detrimental effects of raising my child in a harmless bubble. What exactly is the statistic of babies harmed while fly fishing vs. babies harmed in their own cribs? I rest my case.
