Store Manager: Christian Fichtel
Christian joined Orvis in 2014, and he was made Store Manager of our Greenville location in January of 2017. Holding a Masters Degree in Economics, Christian is also an accomplished writer currently working with Southern Culture On The Fly. While he enjoys chasing bonefish in the islands and redfish in the Lowcountry, it is fishing for brook trout and hunting grouse in the mountains of Western North Carolina with his Brittany, Tucker, that he most enjoys. He is an angler, a hunter, a writer, and a proud supporter of public lands.
Fishing Manager: Mark White
Mark started fly fishing in Southwest Montana while finishing his geology degree from Sewanee. After college, he began a career in environmental consulting that allowed him to fish all over the country while on environmental cleanup projects. While Mark has fished in many great places, his main focus has always been centered around trout in the smaller creeks and streams remotely located along the spine of the Appalachian Mountains of the Carolinas, with the occasional trip to local farm ponds for bass and pan fish, while teaching his two boys the wonders of the outdoors and fly fishing. While fishing, he also enjoys wild flower identification, ornithology, entomology, and dendrology, as well as upland and wetland bird hunting. Come in to talk to Mark about strategies and tactics for success on our local waters.
