Store Manager: Susan Mandl
I have spent the majority of my life in Southern California, happily trading the snow activities of Upstate New York for the ability to be at the beach, visit the desert, or play in the snow all in one day! My retail career spans many years with major retailers, most recently where I had the opportunity to help open new stores and train entire teams. I am delighted to have been given the opportunity to join Orvis, where every day pivots around delivering outstanding customer service to both our internal and external guests! When not at the store, I can be found enjoying the outdoors, taking walks with my husband and our beautiful golden retreiver, Hugo...anything to be outside! My next adventure will be to learn to fly fish with the guidance of our expert fishing staff! Please stop by our store for a visit. I would be happy to meet you and introduce our team!
Store Fishing Manager: Jacob Gorman
Growing up in a family of anglers, I was fortunate to develop a love for this sport at an early age. In 2007 I joined The Orvis Company, not knowing that many years later I would be here as our Fishing Manager and having just as much fun as when I started. Southern California is rich with fishing opportunities, with the Pacific Coast and the Sierra Nevada mountains at our doorstep. In between are many rivers, creeks, and lakes that are all worthy of a fly. Our staff here at Orvis Pasadena brings you a wealth of knowledge and dedication to all aspects of fly fishing. Every week you can find us exploring new territory, fishing familiar runs, or refining techniques to help with your success on the water. Stop by anytime to share your stories, make some new friends, and see what weve been up to lately. See you at the shop!
