This series of posts is meant to introduce all of you terrific tiers and cool customers to our small, but fantastic team of anglers here at The Caddis Fly Angling Shop. Each employee answered a number of questions about their fishing expertise, their favorite style of fishing and fishing products. Each week we will publish another employee’s answers to these questions to let you know Who We Are. This series will hopefully give you a peak into who we are, how we fish, and who you are chatting with when you next call or email Caddis.
Who: Henry Sichel, Internet/Retail Sales, Picker/Packer Extraordinaire
Time at Caddis: I’ve worked at the shop since July of 2016!
Are you a Eugene local, or are you a transplant?
I am from Beaverton, but moved to Eugene 3 years ago to go to U of O.
How many years have you been fly fishing?
I have been fly fishing on and off for a long time, but really got hooked after moving to Eugene and living so close to the Mckenzie River
What is your favorite rod and reel combo?
Wet wade or float, and why?
Wet wade, but hopefully a boat is in the near future
Dry fly, streamer or nymph–and do you tie them?
Spey or single hand cast?
Salt or Freshwater?
Where have you fished?
States: Idaho, Colorado, Montana and Oregon
Waters: I would say Armitage State Park and Deerhorn Road are my favorite spots to fish around Eugene. My all-time favorite spot is the St. Joe River in Idaho!
What is your favorite part about working at Caddis?
Learning more about fly fishing everyday, working with awesome coworkers, being a part of a small team, and building relationships with customers.
When a fellow angler asks, “What is the biggest fish you have ever caught?” what is your answer?
Too big to fit in the net!
Henry is in his Senior year at the University of Oregon completing a degree in Economics and a minor in Business. When he isn’t in class or at the shop he’s out fishing with his fellow collegiate anglers. If you want to know about the specifics of a shipping method or the whereabouts of your online order, Henry’s your man.
