    Now that we've had our grand opening, it's Fall Orvis Days, Oct 4 - 12

    Saturday, Oct. 4 - "Blues, Burgers, Bourbons and Oncorhynchus." We'll be presenting a Grande Ronde summer steelhead seminar featuring Mac Huff; some hot acoustic blues guitar and vocals by Ryan Harder; salmon burgers and a small-batch bourbon tasting presented by Moss Bay Catering.

    Sunday, Oct. 5 John Olson, FFF Certified Casting Instructor, will give free beginning casting instruction.

    Saturday, Oct. 11 - "Antiques, Appraisals, and Brads Brats." Larry Peterson and Dwight Lyons will be here again. They'll display some of their antique Orvis and Hardy reels, rods, flies and much more; Bring in your old gear for Larry and Dwight to appraise and; bring in your fly tying stuff because we're having a fly-tying competition to see who can tie the best Brad's Brat - one of the great traditional Northwest Steelhead flies. The winner will get to pick 24 steelhead flies from our bins.

    Sunday, Oct. 12, once again, Don Simonson, FFF Casting Board Governor, will be here to analyze your casting mechanics - get more out of your casts, get more distance out of your double haul, learn a new mend. For intermediate and advanced casters only.

    And one more thing, we'll have more $25 off $50 coupons to hand out.

    Leland is the party animal . . .

    Who will be the judge(s) for the Brad's Brat (so I need to know what to bring for bribes - grin!)?

    The flyfishing staff will be the judges - Me, Les, Ross and Dov. A nice bottle of 25 year-old Springbank for me will guarantee you a win.
