Store Manager: Dan Byrnes
Dan is a native Pittsburgher who fell in love with fly fishing at an early age. After graduating with a degree in History from Carlow University he spent the summer traveling to all the best rivers across the country. Coming home Dan started working at an outdoor retailer and found his second passion in life. Today he feels fortunate to blend his passions and carry on the Orvis tradition. When not at work you can find Dan hiking the hills looking for a trout stream.
Fishing Manager: Sam Presutti
Sam joined Orvis in the spring of 2015 because of his passion for the outdoors and love for the sport of fly fishing and quickly assumed the role of Fishing Lead in the fall. His inviting personality, can-do attitude, and strong work ethic make Sam a great fit for his new role as Fishing Manager. He has fished extensively throughout the eastern half of the US, from steelhead in his home waters of Ohio to striped bass on the Atlantic coast. When not at the store, Sam loves to travel and explore new water in and around the greater Pittsburgh area.
