Our participation in the Orvis-sponsored Guide Rendezvous and Down the Hatch Film Festival was a HUGE success.  And the biggest reason for the success was due to the efforts of our Chapter Vice-President, Reba Brinkman who pulled together a group of volunteers for the event, not just to help our chapter, but to provide the assistance Orvis needed for all of the events.  And thanks to the members of LOSTU and our friends at Pisgah Chapter for stepping up and volunteering your time – you really made a difference.

Now, to really show our appreciation to Orvis, why don’t you make them your first stop when you need some new fishing stuff (and as anglers we all know that we really do NEED the stuff, not just want it.  Right?).  They are a company tremendously involved in conservation and donate 5% of PRE-TAX profits to organizations like ours and others so remember that when you make your purchases.  There’s an Orvis store on Schenk Parkway in Biltmore Park, and our friends at both Hunter Banks and Davidson River Outfitters carry Orvis products.  So please be sure to patronize these stores and any other store you visit that carries Orvis products.

Come to our meeting next Tuesday, April 17th, 7 PM at REI in Biltmore Park for more details and to see Josh Garris give us a presentation on getting prepared for summer fishing and an upcoming trip to Yellowstone Park.
