Fishing Manager: David Hance
Originally from the Charleston area, David joined the Orvis team in August 2020. He learned to fly-fish at an early age, casting to bass and bream on local ponds/lakes, summer trips to the Blue Ridge Mountains, and wading flood tides for tailing redfish. After graduating from Clemson University in 2010 with a degree in Spanish and International Business, he moved out west to Colorado. There he spent about 6 years working in the craft beer industry, exploring the rivers and mountains of the Rockies through fly-fishing, and pursuing his passion for travel during the off-seasons. Now that David is settled back home in Charleston, he has enjoyed rediscovering the hunting and fly-fishing opportunities here in the Lowcountry but his favorite type of fly-fishing will always be throwing dry flies at rising mountain trout.
