Fly-Fishing Podcast: Lots of Listener Questions and Tom Interviews Orvis Chairman Leigh Perkins


Written by: Kathleen Moore


He’s the Eveready Bunny — at 85 years old, and a recently replaced hip, Leigh Perkins still fishes and hunts 300 days a year. Although he retired as CEO of The Orvis Company in 1992, he’s still chairman of the board and one of our best field testers. He’s always the first one up in the morning and the last one to go to bed, and he lives his life surrounded by a bunch of hunting dogs. I was recently in Florida hunting wild quail and ducks with Leigh and got a chance to get some wisdom from him for a podcast. You’ll note by his answers that he’s one of the most optimistic people you’ll ever meet.
