Store Manager: Jan Peele
Jan is a South Carolina native who has found his home along Florida's Panhandle. Jan loves teaching and absorbing all that the sport of fly fishing has to offer. Yet it is the instant camaraderie, driven by Orvis's Distinctive Country Lifestyle, that fuels his passion for the company and its brand. When not in the store, you can find Jan searching for high adventure throughout the Panhandle's coastal regions and river systems.
Fishing Manager: Sky Johnston
Sky started his career with Orvis as a part-time sales associate back in March of 2014. His sales focus and passion for our products is contagious; over the past year he has been a top salesman in the Sandestin store. Sky managed the store’s FF101 program as the lead instructor and organizer this past season and thoroughly enjoyed introducing the sport of fly fishing to new customers. Sky was raised in Namibia, Africa, where he spent his early years fishing the Zambezi River for the hard-fighting tiger fish. He is an extremely avid angler and is quickly becoming the panhandle's face of Orvis fly fishing.
