GreenvilleAddress & Hours
Sun: 1pm - 6pm
Greetings from our Greenville Store
This event is SOLD OUT.
A very comprehensive one day course for 8 students. We’ve packed a lot of information into an 8 hour day, including: casting, knots, equipment, fishing strategies and fly selection, for coldwater, warmwater 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, as well as lunch and drinks. Just bring a willingness to have fun and learn, but register early, they fill up fast.
Howell Woods is a 2,800 acre natural are along the Neuse river managed by professional foresters and biologists for native wildlife and plant communities. It stands out for both its sheer size and management philosophy especially given its proximity to the triangle. Our class is held in an area of the property which has a pond stocked with native bass and pan fish as well as an indoor and outdoor classroom. That entire area is reserved for our class. We will be at the pond for both casting and fishing portions of the class but have access to indoor and outdoor shelters during the classroom portion.

Corporate Group Events
This spring we’ll be offering free, informal kayak & canoe demonstrations conveniently located near some of our busiest shops. This is a great opportunity to try out a boat in an environment that is informational, informal and presented at no charge.
Our Afternoon Boat Demos are geared towards customers who have already narrowed down their choices after visiting one of our shops and feel that some on-water time prior to purchase is necessary. However, we also welcome folks who are just curious about kayaks & canoes and want to try it out in a low pressure environment.
Folks unable to attend one of our scheduled on-water demo events can inquire with their local shop regarding a fee-based demo. As for specific boats, in addition to any particular models from an attending manufacturer, we’ll bring some of our most popular boats and boards that are best suited for flatwater, fitness, fishing and all-round use. However, please let us know in advance if there is a particular boat or board in our demo fleet you would like to try and we will do our best to get it to the lake. Please note that if a boat or board is not in our demo fleet, we will not be able to bring it to the event.
Greenville is a great community with small town values like hard work, kindness, and friendliness towards your neighbors. Great Outdoor Provision Co. is thrilled to be a part of this town, and our staff is excited to show you all of the wonderful outdoor experiences you can find just a short drive away.
Great Outdoor Provision Co. in Greenville is the outdoor shop that has everything you need for a wilderness adventure! When our employees aren’t in the store, they can be found running on the South Tar River Greenway, paddling the Neuse River, or hiking in the Croatan National Forest. Whether you want to take a hike with young ones and a dog or are planning to run the rigorous Mountains-to-Sea trail, we’ll make sure that everyone in your party is happy, comfortable, and prepared for anything.
If running and hiking aren’t your style, we have a wide array of supplies for every outdoor activity, from disc golf to fly fishing. Our manager, Lindsey Barr, has “a true passion for the outdoors, and for sharing the outdoors with other people.” Our expert employees can help the beginner get started on a lifelong hobby, and have plenty of advice for even the most experienced outdoorsman.
