Store Manager: Jef Fair
Jef grew up in the Texas Hill Country and began fly fishing when he was 14. He worked in fly shops while attending Texas Christian University, and was hired by Orvis as the Fishing Manager when the Arlington, Texas, location opened in 2007. Since then, Jef has been Store Manager of both the Arlington and Dallas locations. Jef relocated to Austin to open the store there, as well as to get closer to his family still living in central Texas. When he's not working or fly fishing, Jef enjoys spending time with his wife, as well as their two Australian shepherds.
