Our Flagship and Outlet Stores

The Orvis Rod Shop

The Orvis Rod Shop is located at 4182 Main Street behind the Orvis Flagship Store in Manchester, Vermont, the same town where Charles Orvis opened his very first fly rod shop in 1856 and where all of our finest fly rods are still built. The Rod Shop employs a dedicated team of rod designers, fabrication specialists, pattern makers, machine operators, finishers, and product testers. The facility also includes rod and reel repair services and warehouse operations.

Our state-of-the-art school is located directly across the street from the Flagship Store in Manchester, Vermont.

Outside, there is a designated casting area. Inside, the spacious classroom is appointed with hickory furniture and has a built-in video projector for teaching. Our instructors are the best in the industry, and they work in the most beautiful facility of its kind anywhere in the world.

The Orvis Distribution Center

In the summer of 1987, The Orvis Company moved its distribution center to Blue Hills Drive in the Roanoke Valley, looking for a place where there was a strong and talented employee base. Executive warehouse leadership, telephone sales, customer service, personalization, tailoring, information services, and shipping and receiving are all based in Roanoke.

Ever since Charles F. Orvis opened his first tackle shop on Main Street in Manchester, Vermont in 1861, exceptional customer service has been the hallmark of our brand. We have stores across the US, and continue to open more each year. From a career standpoint, Orvis is a great place to grow. Our retail sales associates are given extensive training and development. Associates that achieve outstanding performance may be chosen to participate in our Manager-in-Training program and may eventually be promoted to Fly Fishing Manager, Retail Store Manager, or even Area Manager.

Working Dogs

Our dogs make every day better, and welcoming them into the Orvis Home Office was one of the best decisions we've ever made. Our fellow, furry colleagues brighten up our mornings, chase tennis balls at lunchtime, and snooze away the afternoons.
