Rick Porcello is a Cy Young award winning pitcher for the Boston Red Sox. He also has a strong passion for fly fishing. In this week’s Video of the Week, we take a look at a film produced by Orvis documenting his time spent during his baseball offseason.
Porcello enjoys fishing as a way to escape from the spotlight. In the film, he fishes with Orvis COO Simon Perkins. Throughout the film, Porcello explains the stress that baseball can have on him and how he is able to use fishing as a release.
This film is a part of the “Orvis Presents” series. Be sure to keep up with their YouTube page for future episodes.
The video of the week is selected and written by Fly Lords team member Conner Grimes (@doublehaulfishing).
