US Patent No.150,883

This is the patent number for the first ventilated fly fishing reel, designed and patented by Charles F. Orvis in 1874.  This is also the name for the Orvis Company's new "patent collection" of clothing and other products that are skillfully crafted in the USA.

Classic men's clothing, watches, knives, wallets, belts, shoes, boots and much more.  There's even a braided cowboy lasso rope and regulation size leather football.  And while you're browsing the collection, don't miss the 1951 Ford F-1 Pickup Truck that has been completely restored to original condition.

Like the original Orvis reel there's a special feeling of craftsmanship, tradition, and pride that comes with stamping four words onto the label of a product: Made in the USA.

And here's a little bit of trivia; the ever popular and classic Orvis CFO reel was named after the company's founder, Charles F. Orvis.
