THE LOST CITY OF Z

Plot

The spellbinding latest work from director James Gray (The Immigrant), The Lost City of Z tells the incredible true story of British explorer Percy Fawcett (Charlie Hunnam), who journeys into the Amazon at the dawn of the 20th century and discovers evidence of a previously unknown, advanced civilization. An epically scaled tale of courage and passion, the film also features Robert Pattinson and Sienna Miller and is a stirring account of a conflicted adventurer driven to the verge of obsession.

Fly Fishing Class — Triad @ Private Pond in Germantown, NC
May 6 all-day

The Great Outdoor Provision Co. Fly Fishing Class is a very comprehensive one day course with two instructors for six to eight students.

We’ve packed a lot of information into an eight hour day, including: casting, knots, equipment, fishing strategies and fly selection, for cold water, warm water and saltwater species.
Beginners can expect to learn the skills that will allow them to catch fish on their own, and intermediate level fly fishers can advance their casting skills and fill in some holes in their technical knowledge.

We provide all equipment, including a textbook, a few flies, as well as lunch and drinks. Just bring your sense of humor, a willingness to have fun and learn, but register early.

*All Winston-Salem fly fishing registration is handled by the Winston-Salem shop*

To Register Please

a) Call (336) 727-0906
b) email the staff at gopc601@greatoutdoorprovision.com

Greensboro and surrounding areas are filled with great vistas!

Greensboro has everything: paddling and fishing at Lake Brandt or the Haw River, hiking and trail running at the Piedmont Environmental Center or the Watershed Lakes trails, and bike trails with majestic views at Hanging Rock State Park and Uwharrie National Forest. Whatever your pleasure is, the Great Outdoor Provision Co. will make sure that you have everything you need to meet the trail (or river) head on. From the big purchases, like a kayak, to the smallest, like a carabiner, Great Outdoor Provision Co. has you covered.

We don’t just carry all of the products you’ll need for your outdoor adventures. Our manager, Rob Arends, and his staff offers something equally, if not more important: knowledge and education about the great outdoors. We spend our off days using the same equipment we sell, so we can tell you what to expect where you’re going, and what things you do or don’t need.

Our motto – explore global, shop local – epitomizes the way we do our business. We want to open the world to exploration, and it starts with our community. Stop by our store, and let us show you what Greensboro has to offer. You might be surprised at the wilderness right outside our back door.
