Store Manager: Angela Robles Coffman
Angela has been a key contributor to the Orvis Reno location during her 10-year tenure with the company. Angela has worked side-by-side with the leadership in the Reno store as a lead associate. Over the last year, she has stepped in to lead the Reno team during our leadership transition and became the Interim Store Manager, until recently when she decided she would like to officially apply for the Store Manager position. During this time Angela has proven to be a committed leader, facing challenges head on and providing the glue that kept the team motivated and supported. As a native to the area, Angela has the most intimate knowledge of the Reno/Tahoe area, is the longest-standing associate to the store, has a loyal customer following, and is no stranger to the local waters. When Angela is not working, you can find her spending time with her husband Brett, her toddler Logan, and their German shepherd Nik.
Fishing Manager: Tom Larsen
Tom started at Orvis as a part-time associate in the Worthington, OH store in 2014 and moved to Reno, NV in 2017. He gained a passion for the outdoors at a young age as he fished the high mountain lakes of southern Utah. While attending Utah Valley University Tom honed his fly-fishing skills on the Provo and Weber Rivers. During that time he also gained a love for backpacking, as he began to explore and fish the high alpine lakes in the Wind River range in Wyoming. Tom is also an avid fly tier and can be found most nights sitting at his vise. He also enjoys hiking, trail running and watching a good basketball game.
