Store Manager: Glenn Martenson
Fishing Manager: Zeph Michaels
Zeph joined Orvis in September 2013 at our Chicago location and set a blaze of fishing fire behind him. Zeph is one of the most passionate fly-fishermen you will get the chance to meet. He loves to tie his own flies and enjoys getting out and fishing the harbors of Lake Michigan, the Kankakee for smallies, trout in the Driftless, steelhead in Wisconsin, carp in the flats of Michigan, and reds in Florida—and that is just the short list of his fishing adventures! Zeph looks forward to contributing to the local fishing market as the Fishing Manager of Orvis Yorktown.
