Manchester VT is something of a time capsule. It’s a two-stoplight town lined with marble sidewalks manicured lawns and immaculately restored colonial homes…….. It’s a stark juxtaposition of old world meets new which also happens to be the perfect analogy for the township’s most well-known resident the Orvis fly-fishing shop. Inside the Orvis Fly-F...
