    Got some cool stuff going on this October 4-18 for Orvis Days as we return to our good 'ol party days!

    Look in your mailbox for our famous $25 coupons!

    On Saturday, Oct. 10 at 12 noon, Derek Young of Emerging Rivers Guide Services, will be here to talk about "Fall Fly Fishing on the Yakima River." Derek is the newest member of our Orvis crew. He is the fly fishing instructor at our Fly Fishing School in North Bend as well the only Orvis Endorsed Guide in Western Washington.

    At 4:00PM, Steve Rohrbach will be here to show you how he catches "waiting period, staging, closed-mouth, non-biting, zipper-lipped coho" in the salt. Steve will not only spill his guts, he will also tie his favorite (and no-longer secret) waiting period flies. If you're frustrated with staging coho, you can't afford to miss this program.

    The following weekend, beginning at 11:00AM on Saturday, Oct. 17, we'll have free casting lessons all day with four terrific FFF Certified Casting Instructors: Craig Koeppler; John Olson, Pat Peterman and Bo McDirmid.

    At 12 noon, Ryan Harder will sing and play an acoustic blues set. We've missed having Ryan here, due to the economy, but are happy to be able to once again afford his outlandish fees.

    At 1:00PM, Steve Apple will tell us all how he made over a gazillion dollars on his movie "Hustle and Fish" and slightly less on his first film, "Fishizzle." If you've ever wanted some face time with a fly fishing movie mogul, here's your chance to make your pitch.

    2:30PM: Ryan will play a second set, this time, without his tin cup.

    At 3:30PM, two wild and crazy guys, Eric Rathbun and Brian Bennett, will be here to show and tell you how they scored over two gazillion bucks with their wildly successful website, MoldyChum.com. If you've secretly harbored a desire to turn your blog into something more extreme, Eric and Brian will do their best to talk you out of it.

    On Sunday, the 18th, from 1:00PM to 4:00PM, Don Simonson, everybody's favorite FFF Casting Board of Governor, will be here to analyze your casts. He'll see your faults and bad habits and tell you how to correct them. A lot of people have benefitted from Don's teaching through the years and we're always pleased, as well as lucky, to have Don come help us.

    Go support your fly shop! I spent my bucks on saltwater hooks, hourglass eyes and beads. Great deal with the $25 off.
