Store Manager: Jimmy Aliff
Jimmy worked with Orvis for over six years at the Tysons Corner location, both as an associate and as the Fishing Manager, before becoming the Store Manager of our Leesburg store. A self-taught fly fisherman at the age of 12, Jimmy has fished the Carolinas, the Virginias, Wyoming, Montana, and Belize. He also enjoys hunting for deer, bear, turkey, and upland birds. When not at work or in the field, Jimmy enjoys spending time with his wife and their tracking dog Whiskey.
Fishing Manager: Scott Allen
Scott and his family made Northern Virginia their home 14 years ago. After retiring from the Air Force in 2006, Scott transitioned to working as a government contractor. He has enjoyed fishing most of his adult life—stalking native brook trout in mountain streams, casting for bass and pan fish on local lakes, surf fishing in the outer banks, hunting bones on the flats, or sitting on the pier with his father-in-law, catching whatever happens to swim by. While using a fly rod is his preferred method of fishing, he can be found using light spinning gear or a Tenkara rod when the mood and conditions warrant it.
