Orvis Presents: If I Tell Them

In recognition of Mental Health Awareness Month, Orvis is proud to present “If I Tell Them,” a powerful film featuring James Sampsel, a painter and Orvis-endorsed fly-fishing guide, who bravely shares his past struggles and a bipolar diagnosis that hangs over his future—as a guide, a husband, and a father. As a partner and sponsor of the Outdoor Guide Association, we share its mission to promote community understanding and encourage treatment for anyone who wants it.
