Damon Bunngard is the inventor/owner of a very slick line of outdoor oriented coolers with the name brand Orion. Damon is also very involved in the design and fabrication of fishing kayaks with the name brand Jackson. I was chatting with them about the line of kayaks and how terrific they are for all things fishing because they are stable enough to stand in and cast and they really accommodate the fisherman. Damon is a fly fishing not and I just happened to bring up the following question. “You have a relationship with Orvis don't you? I do. My wife is from Vermont and I lived there for many years and became friends with the guys at Orvis because their fly rod factory is there, down in Manchester. We are a big made in the USA brand, they certainly are with their fly rods and I love to fly fish, I love photography, I love telling stories so over the years I gained some friends there. I used to go out to the Orvis guide rendezvous in Montana every spring and was featured on their Orvis news. Trout Bum of the Week was the name of their little article. They are fun guys, love to fly fish for everything and sometimes I contribute articles to Orvis news on techniques or out of shop for a fly fishing package and things like that.”
