Fly Fishing Class | Virginia Beach @ Johnson's Gardens

Fly Fishing Class | Virginia Beach @ Johnson's Gardens | Suffolk | Virginia | United States

We’re excited to have another fly fishing class for our VA Beach customers at Johnson’s Garden’s in Suffolk. It’s a great facility with multiple ponds and a nice shade tree covered area for our classroom. Last year’s group caught lots of fish with their newfound skills.

Description
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.

Virginia Beach Boat Demo @ First Landing State Park -- The Narrows
May 22 @ 4:00 pm – 7:00 pm

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.

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.
