A while back there was discussion of a position at Sage for a Marketing Manager, which is still open.
Rio also has an opening for a Marketing Manager/Product Manager at their Idaho Falls office. I got this info on LinkedIn
in case anyone is interested. Far Bank Enterprises is the parent company of both Sage and Rio.

It looks like there is a captain position that recently opened to skipper the Cornelia Marie crab fishing boat in Alaska.

Leland, I would apply for the store manager in Bellevue except for two reasons:


1. I have no retail managerial experience
2. I'd be horrible to work for.

Unfortunately for many folks with experience in the flyfishing industry, their best job option these days requires them to wear a uniform and ask, "Would you like to supersize that order?"

Orvis in Jackson would be nice. Does the salary allow one to reside in Jackson?
You're kidding, right? For someone on industry wage you'll be living four to a house in Jackson. Things in the Teton Valley aren't much better as far as cost of living.

If you want to get into the FF industry you had better come in already bankrolled, and with your house paid off. There are very, very few people making what I consider to be a viable living in the industry. You'd be better off to become a teacher - more pay, benefits & summers off.

I'd like to get back in to the industry, but with a wife in Grad School, house, and a good job it'd be a hit. Plus I enjoy a 9-80 schedule, no Saturdays at the shop etc. I can't say work is as enjoyable as it was guiding and working for outdoor shops/manufacturers, but at least I have this forum....

I know this thread is a month old, but I thought I would post a job posting for a PNW Washington company by a headhunter called The Generator Group. I don't know anything about the company, so if they make crap I don't want to hear about it...

Huh? What is "brands competitive set"? I could probably give "critical insights into core consumer’s purchasing habits" if I knew what they were selling. Of all the requirements for consideration, the only one I have is the "passion for flyfishing" Think they might want to hire me?
