What a great email to receive on Thanksgiving week:

My name is 1LT Kyle Pernelli. I am an avid fly fisher and have been a long time believer in your products. While serving in Afghanistan, I received an Orvis Practicaster and have been able to spend some time practicing doing what I love most. My local Orvis shop in Marlton, New Jersey told my folks to have me contact you with any pictures I took with it. I am looking forward to redeploying back home and spending a large part of my leave fly fishing. Hope you and your family have a wonderful holiday season and thank you for supporting our soldiers and wounded warriors.

We thank Lieutenant Pernelli for his service and look forward to the time he can spend with a fly rod in his hand and (hopefully) a trout on the end of his line.
