More Orvis Glass And A Convert Too

I'm not sure Orvis realized when they hired Shawn Combs that he'd be rummaging through the back rooms at the office like a pack rat finding old fiberglass Golden Eagle blanks to build up and that he also has a "sinister" plan to convert his fellow employees one by one into certified glass geeks. 



Shawn sent this dispatch over the weekend...   

"I decided to convert a buddy of mine, Tyler Atkins (Orvis Rod & Tackle Control Buyer) to fiberglass.  What better way than putting the bend on a seven foot three weight on a big fish.  During the first deep pull he looked over at me and said "When can I get one?"  Mission accomplished."

Shawn...fine work.  Who's next on the list?
