My Golden, Buddy, is able to destroy any toy in a matter of seconds. We have bought him every “indestructible toy” on the market—gone in a minute! Except for this bone, which he loves to carry around and is obviously very dear to him.

After I spent thirteen months in Afghanistan, my Dad and I needed some quality time together. I found the school on Orvis’s website and knew it would be perfect. The Lodge & Spa at Cordillera was such a treat. I have never been treated so well by a group of strangers.

I was on the James River in Richmond, Virginia, last fall fishing for smallmouth and was having a very slow day. I went around an island into a shallow cove with a very weedy bottom that I had fished many times before with no luck. I was using a 3-weight that day, thinking I wouldn’t have much luck with anything besides the bream.

I ordered the Backseat Protector about two months ago and have used it sparingly since. However, that all changed recently, when we rented a pet-friendly cottage in the Kawartha Lakes for 10 days and the protector was put through its paces. It was amazing how easy it cleaned up after both dogs had done their best to it—dirt, water, and, oh yeah,hair! (I have two Labs, black and yellow.)

I can’t say enough the Orvis Quick Dry Jackson Pants. The fit is comfortable (even for those with some bulk like me…), the material is lightweight, yet tough and you can pull a rolled up pair from the bottom of the closet or a bag and they look great and are ready to wear.

We adopted Jennie, our Plott Hound-Weimaraner mix, in New Hampshire. She started out very mellow, though she was afraid of the hot-air balloons that would fly frequently over our home. In an attempt to make her less whimpy, other family members tried to get her excited over the balloons. This worked, but unfortunately she started to bark at the balloons. . .and the moon. . .and anything else in the sky.

I’m not going to lie; I’ve been known to abuse my pants. I’ll hang on to them for years, wear them until they’re threadbare, and then they’ll bust a seam at an inopportune time—such as when I’m wearing them. It’s happened, and it’s embarrassing.

The Orvis Open Air Caster is one of those tried-and-true shirts that lives in your closet for years until it’s tattered, bloodied, and torn from loving wear but vanishes mysteriously one day while you’re away when your wife has free reign to your wardrobe and can’t stand the sight of it any more.
