Orvis has been a go-to standard for me since I was a little kid. Their gear has never let me down and continues to be the first place I turn when it's time to refresh my fly gear. Their shirts and other products for home are great too. Couldn't get through a winter without a box of their fatwood to get the home fires burning!
