Greetings from our Virginia Beach Store
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.

Summer is the time for kids to get up, get out and grow. But for some kids, exposure to activities that stimulate the body and mind ends with the school year. In fact, research shows that kids are prone to gain more weight and fall behind in studies. On April 29, the Y will celebrate Healthy Kids Day®, our national initiative to improve the health and well-being of kids.
Join any of our YMCA locations on Healthy Kids Day for a variety of interactive activities*, including tumbling, color runs, pool games, engineering activities, and so much more! Healthy Kids Day is free and open to the public!
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.
The ocean is our greatest adventure playground and likely the biggest treasure chest of nature. The International OCEAN FILM TOUR Volume 4 wraps the most powerful stories, inspiring protagonists and stunning visuals into one evening event to show us the place where all life began.
We are now open at Hilltop East Shopping Center and are thrilled to be a part of the Virginia Beach community! Come by and see us for superior service, selection, and a chance to really get a feel for our products from a staff who know and go outdoors.
In Virginia Beach we’re building on the same legacy of outdoor retail that GOPC has cultivated since 1972. A legacy of integrity. A legacy of treating others the way we would want to be treated. A legacy of putting the customer first. In a world of big-box shops and online retailers, GOPC is a breath of fresh air for both customers and staff. We are still a human enterprise where people matter.
