Orvis began in 1856 as a fly fishing company. To this day we remain more committed than ever to the sporting traditions and the natural environment. Steeped in a heritage of outdoor traditions and distinctive country living, we invite our customers to enjoy a life that expresses a deep appreciation for the natural environment. Orvis donates 5% of pre-tax profits annually to organizations that protect fish and wildlife habitat. Over the last six years, we've donated nearly $5 million to these organizations, including Trout Unlimited, The Nature Conservancy, Coastal Conservation Association, Ducks Unlimited, The Conservation Fund, Ruffed Grouse Society, and The Atlantic Salmon Fund.

Our Staff

Store Manager: Chris Jorgensen
Chris was one of the original staff four years ago here at the Pasadena store. Prior to finding a home here at Orvis he was a regional manager for the US Forest Service, cleaned up oil spills with the Marine Spill Response Company, was a TRW systems engineer and a charter boat captain. On his occasional days off you can find him sailing, ‘surveying’ the local streams, or just hanging out in the L.A. harbor marina where he lives.
Fishing Manager: David Shaffer
Dave has been fishing manager in Pasadena for a year. He came to Orvis with over 25 years experience in the fly fishing industry. He has taught both casting and fishing schools and taken groups to many exotic locations to pursue both fresh and saltwater species on the fly. Dave is a native Southern Californian.
