Store Manager: Jason Davis
Jason brings a wealth of retail-store management experience in the sporting goods industry, having worked at Dunhams, Dicks Sporting Goods, and most recently Bass Pro Shops. In keeping with his outdoor passions, Jason has also spent time in his career working locally for the Clinton River Watershed Council as an Adopt-A-Stream coordinator. The experience he gained working in the watershed moved him to write the first Anglers Guide to Paint Creek, a book on one of southeast Michigans best trout fisheries. Presently, Jason also serves as President of the Clinton Valley Chapter of Trout Unlimited. When hes not working or volunteering for local conservation groups, youll find Jason fly fishing local waters, fly tying, hunting, camping, or wild-mushroom hunting in his home state of Michigan.
Fishing Manager: Katherine Ferner
Katie comes to Orvis having guided and worked as an associate in various shops in Michigan, Alaska, Montana, and Florida. Working in a variety of locales has given Katie the opportunity to hook and land a large number of different species on a fly rod and gain valuable experience fishing for many different types of freshwater and saltwater species. Katie is a Michigan native and graduated from Western Michigan University with a degree in recreation. When Katie gets a day off from the store, you'll find her either on a local river casting a fly rod or in the woods hunting turkey or whitetail deer.
