    Hey guys, here's the Orvis Days Program for this coming Saturday and Sunday.

    All Battenkill Large Arbor and Mach reels are being closed out. Rods, waders, clothes and wading shoes are on sale.

    Besides the seminars on Saturday, we'll have Slow-Cooked Elk Stew with Yukon Gold Potatoes and cornbread.

    Leland.



    Bonefish and Tarpon
    12:00 PM * 1:30 PM

    Fresh back from a successful May trip to Belize, Leland Miyawaki, will share a week of sun, bonefish, tarpon, Belizean hospitality and more rum punch than any of us will admit to.


    Sheridan Lake, BC
    2:00 PM * 3:30 PM

    Lake Sheridan, located in Central B.C., offers some of the most frustrating, focused, intense, and incredible fun you can have throwing flies for monster Rainbows. 4 to 5 pounds are fairly common. 8 pounds gets some attention. 9 and up people want to talk with you. Knowing the difference between Red and Maroon floss, or Light Tan and Pale Yellow yarn can mean the difference between a sore arm from fighting fish all day, and frustration. Throwing huge Traveling Sedge dry fly patterns at dusk can leave you shaking. If you want to know more, Greg Mine will be here to point you in the right direction.


    North Cascades Institute
    4:00 PM * 5:30 PM

    Do you and your children want to follow a swallowtail through a mountain meadow? Track a bobcat through the woods? Paint a watercolor? Listen for owls? Paddle a canoe? Share a story? Identify wildflowers? Megan McGinty of the North Cascades Institute will be here to tell you all about this fabulous camp right here in our backyard.



    Sunday, Oct. 7

    Casting Instruction with Craig Koeppler
    12:00 PM * 4:00 PM

    FFF Certified Casting Instructor, Craig Koeppler will be here to introduce you to fly casting. He'll show you a range of basic casting skills, concentrating on loop formation and how the casting stroke affects delivery of line, leader and fly to our intended targets.

    For those that missed this you missed out on some great stew on Saturday - not to mention the corn bread. Heck, the sale was even good! :)

    Keep your eyes on this forum and I'll soon be announcing a major event that will involve some single malt whisky.

    FYI. We still have a lot of BK Large Arbor and Mach reels on sale as well as both brands of waders. All red-tagged merchandise has been marked down 40% with an additional 20% taken off at the register.

    No whisky though, Obi.

    Leland.
