This is the story of a man, Perkins, and the creation of that high minded sporting goods business whose ways smack of the trout streams of Ireland and the gun rooms of London. If you are an Outdoor Sportsman, his way may not be your way, even though his book makes enjoyable reading. And Orvis may not reflect the outdoor life as you know it. In my own book Postcards.

Perkins recognized the opportunity to make Orvis synonymous not only with fly fishing but with an entire way of life, and greatly enlarged the product line into gifts and clothing. Today, Orvis has published a multitude of instructional books and podcasts, most often published or written by fly fishing mentor Tom Rosenbauer who has been with the company for 30 years. In 1966, Leigh Perkins launched a successful fly-fishing school in Manchester, eventually expanding into Missouri, Michigan, Virginia, Idaho and Massachusetts. As of 2006, seven Orvis schools had graduated about 40,000 students.
