About this Event
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.
*Location of the Class will be disclosed after registration.*
Thank you for buying your Canoe, Kayak or SUP from Great Outdoor Provision Co!
We realize you have many options for your purchase and want to offer our customers a special perk for doing business with us. This spring we’ll be offering free, informal Canoe, Kayak & SUP Orientation for folks who bought their boat or board from us – conveniently located near some of our busiest shops. While this is not intended as formal instruction, we will show you the basics of getting safely launched on the water and briefly cover some basic concepts such as proper posture, getting good traction between paddle blade and the water, using torso rotation for proper technique and maintaining good balance. We’ll tailor our time for your particular type of watercraft (i.e., we’ll customize your orientation depending on whether you bought a Fishing Kayak or a SUP) or your area of interest. You’ll get about 30 minutes of informal instruction –all for free and all because you bought your boat/board from us.
Please register for our On-Water Paddlesports Orientation in advance by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org with your name and the model of boat or board you recently purchased from us. Please note that our On-Water Paddlesports Orientation is only available to customers who purchased their Canoe, Kayak or SUP from Great Outdoor Provision Company within the past 12 months. There is no charge.
Any weather-related cancellation of this event will be announced via @GreatOutdoorWinston on Instagram. Follow this feed for updates.
Bring your boat or board that you recently purchased from us and your own paddle and PFD. You’ll also have an opportunity to try a different paddle or PFD if you wish. You are also welcome to stay for the Afternoon Boat Demo, which will be taking place at the same venue immediately after the Orientation.
Please register for our boat demo in advance by emailing email@example.com with the boats you are interested in (if applicable). Please note that if a specific boat or board is not in our demo fleet we will not be able to bring it to the event.

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.
Interesting Stories of Greensboro Staff and Adventure
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.
