“The Unseen World of Fly Fishing,’ with Brian Hester @ Charlotte Shop
Jun 21 @ 7:30 pm – 8:30 pm
"The Unseen World of Fly Fishing,' with Brian Hester @ Charlotte Shop | Charlotte | North Carolina | United States

Join us for an art show with Brian Hester (@bhester.hookedflycompany) at 7:30PM on June 21st!

 

Brian Hester, a native of Boone, North Carolina grew up waist deep in whatever river water he could find so he could develop his craft and love for the Fly-Fishing. He found the outdoors to be a limitless sanctuary that cultivated his interest in art and acted as a channel for him to embrace his observations and surroundings while (fishing waters from Banner Elk to Linville all the way back to West Jefferson). This heightened curiosity would play a key role in the creation of his art. The passion that ensued elevated his drive and awareness to recreate his subject matter as a “vision of a world that could not be defined either by being above the water, below the water or both.” His charge is to capture what is usually “unseen,” and the inverse of relationship(s) created from the wonderful world of Fly-Fishing. These variables have continually heightened his aptitude for the visual arts as well as serving as a catalyst for pursuing a degree and career in art education from UNC Charlotte, Appalachian State and Winthrop University. The symbiotic relationship between Brian’s Fly-Fishing and his art is simple, without one, the other does not exist.

#GetHiking! Meetups

Store manager Rudy Hayden knows that the best climber, fisher, or other outdoor sportsman is the one having the most fun. Anyone who has forgotten a rash guard while surfing or didn’t purchase a windbreaker for a rainy hike knows that it’s hard to have fun when you’re cold and underprepared. At Great Outdoor Provision Co. in Charlotte, our staff knows outdoor activities and the appropriate gear inside and out.

Looking for a sleeping bag that will keep you warm at a certain temperature? Need a particular fishing fly? Do you know you want a kayak, but aren’t sure what kind you’d like? Come to our store, and we’ll make sure that you get what you need.

Don’t worry – we won’t load you up with dozens of gadgets that barely fit in your backpack and weigh eighty pounds. Our time outdoors has taught us what things you really need (thermal baselayers) and what you probably don’t (ten-pound portable shower). Whatever your situation is, our experienced staff has probably encountered it before, and we can give you the products (and the advice!) that you need for a successful outdoor adventure.

Do you want to explore the outdoors, but aren’t quite sure what to do? Come to our boat demos,standup paddle board demos, fly tying classes, or kayak fishing clinics. At Great Outdoor Provision Co., we want to share our passion for the wilderness with you.
