Kayak Fishing 101 w/ TKAA @ Virginia Beach Shop

Join TKAA as we talk about the basics of kayak fishing. From how to pick the right kayak for you along with the best fitting paddle. Also how to pick the right PFD (personal flotation device) for you.

We will talk about where to fish and when to fish. Reading tides and waterways for salt water. How to rig poles for hitting top water or bottom fishing. Fishing with artificial lures and plastics versus using live bait.

We will also go over how to keep yourself safe on the water including a float plan, marking your kayak, what to wear, what to have with you, and what to expect if you turtle. Then what to do next!

Also, it’s a great opportunity to come out and meet new members or socialize with ones you already know. Come on out and we look forward to seeing you there!!

Lunch will be provided by the club but any dishes to pass would be appreciated.

Virginia Beach Fly Fishing Class @ Johnson's Garden Center
May 9 @ 9:00 am – 5:00 pm

We’re excited to have another fly fishing class for our VA Beach customers at Johnson’s Gardens in Suffolk.

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.

We’re excited to have another fly fishing class for our VA Beach customers at Johnson’s Gardens in Suffolk. It’s a great facility with multiple ponds and a nice shade tree covered area for our classroom.

Paddlesports Orientation (for Customers) @ First Landing State Park - The Narrows
May 14 @ 3:30 pm – 4:15 pm
Paddlesports Orientation (for Customers) @ First Landing State Park - The Narrows

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 gopc701@greatoutdoorprovision.com 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 @Trusty_VaBeach 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.

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.
