For the past ten years, he has written and edited the Orvis Fly Fishing blog, including the “Wednesday Wake-Up Call,” a weekly round-up of important conservation news. Orvis commits 5% of its pre-tax profits to conservation efforts, and current matching-grant programs are focused on Everglades restoration and stopping the proposed Pebble Mine in Alaska.
From 1998 to 2008, Phil edited American Angler, one of the “Big Three” fly-fishing magazines in the U.S., and before that, he worked for Outdoor Life. He continues to write for magazines, such as Gray’s Sporting Journal, American Angler, and Sporting Classics.
