Orvis Names Two Rivers Emporium of Pinedale, Wyoming as 2008 Orvis Endorsed Outfitter of the Year

MANCHESTER, VT--(Marketwire - May 28, 2009) - At their annual Endorsed Operations Rendezvous in Bozeman, Montana, the Orvis Company announced Two Rivers Emporium of Pinedale, Wyoming as the Orvis Endorsed Outfitter of the Year for 2008. Two Rivers offers float, wade and pack trips into some of the best fly fishing waters in the West, including the legendary Green River.

"A good outfitter needs to provide an outstanding experience on the streams, rivers and lakes they take their clients fishing, but also manage their retail stores in order to provide the best experience and customer service in an industry that has only become more demanding," said Dave Perkins, Vice Chairman of The Orvis Company. "Two Rivers Emporium not only excels in those areas, but pushes to improve the entire industry through their professionalism and on-going development of high education accreditation in the area of hospitality management and an emphasis in fly fishing. They are an inspiration and leader in this industry."

One customer recently said, "The first time I tried fly fishing, I was hopeless and guessed that I'd never get it. With all the help I received from the shop and guides, I learned the basics and now look upon fly fishing as a new and exciting part of my outdoor life."

For twenty years the Orvis Company has been recognizing excellence in fly fishing lodges, fly fishing outfitters, and fly fishing guides through its Endorsed Lodges Outfitters and Guides program. Each endorsed operation has its own character, but all share the same high standards: great service, great fishing and an experienced, professional staff. These standards of excellence are continually reviewed by the Orvis staff and evaluated by visiting guests in post-visit critiques sent directly to The Orvis Company. Orvis endorsed operations cater to ability levels from beginner to expert.
