The Position: Fly Fishing Department Manager
Lewis Mull loved adventure and believed there should be a place where others like him could go and find the quality outdoor gear they needed. With this vision in mind, he started Backwoods in 1973. And over the years, we have evolved. Lewis' daughter Jennifer, CEO since 2003, has taken Backwoods and expanded its reach without losing the original authenticity.
Backwoods has always been an exclusive portal to adventure. It is known as the place to find experts on everything adventurous. And now people of many interests – those who climb tall mountains, those who have never set foot on a trail, those who travel the world, and those who travel downtown – will all discover that Backwoods is the perfect place for them. These adventurers find travel gear and accessories, technical outdoor equipment, and casual clothing and footwear with that special, adventurous flair.
