What are your weekend plans next Saturday?  If you live close to Asheville (or can get there) then hopefully we'll see you at the upcoming Orvis Down the Hatch Fly Fishing Festival which will be held at Highland Brewing

I'll have a table at the event and will be carrying along some giveaway T.F.M. decals, Retro Fly koozies for your brew can and other swag from the T.F.M. Store.   

Come for the festival, have a couple beers (it's for conservation after all) check out the music, raffles and giveaways and stick around for the films to top out the event.

From Orvis...  "Enjoy local food and music; plus check out the latest outdoor and fly-fishing gear from Orvis, Klean Kanteen, Astral, Smith, NRS, Yeti and others. After the outdoor festival, join us in The Taproom for the Down the Hatch films to wrap up the night. Tickets for the films are $15.

12:00 - 6:30pm Down the Hatch Fly Fishing Festival outside at The Meadows (FREE)
12:30pm Live music from The Clydes
2:30pm Guide Olympics Finals
4:15pm Live music from The Jakob's Ferry Stragglers
Raffles throughout the afternoon
7:00pm Down the Hatch Films inside The Taproom ($15 tickets)

The first 500 folks take home a free Klean Kanteen pint glass. and we'll have a bunch of great raffle prizes that we'll award through the afternoon and evening, including the grand prize—a once-in-a-lifetime getaway for two to an undisclosed world-class destination that will be picked at the films. You must be present to win.

Proceeds from the event and $0.50 from each beer sold will go to local water conservation efforts through Land O'Sky Trout Unlimited."
