An Important Note about Our Rod Shop Tours

At the Manchester Rod Shop, safety is our top priority. In an effort to keep our associates and customers safe during the recent rise in COVID-19 cases, we have currently paused guided tours at the Rod Shop. Please check back here for updates on when the tours will be running once again. Thanks for your patience; we look forward to seeing you at the Manchester Rod Shop soon!

For all of us at Orvis, the words "Made in America" mean more today than they ever have. What they carry with them is an unwavering promise of quality, backed by over 150 years of sweat, innovation, passion, and pride. 


Nowhere is that on display more prominently than in our Manchester, Vermont, Rod Shop, where our fly rods are conceived, constructed, tested, and ultimately perfected. From the state-of-the-art graphite technology used in our Helios® and Recon® rods to the time-tested Tonkin-cane construction of our bamboo series, each step in the process involves hard-working American hands and a powerful connection not only to our history, but to each and every rod we build. 


While the finished product that leaves the shop may be a fly rod, at the end of the day, we realize that we're building much more than that. Fly rods become bonds between family members. They become trusted travel companions. They become tangible memories of fish and people and places. 


All of this is why we have been—and will continue to be—supremely proud to offer American-made fly rods, crafted by Vermonters who love to fish just as much as you do.
