Fridays on the Fly: 4 Reasons Not to Miss the Orvis Down the Hatch Festival in Asheville, NC

first_imgLater this week, Asheville NC will again become the host of one of the largest gatherings of professional fly fishing guides in the nation. The 32nd annual Orvis Guide Rendezvous is a 3-day experience where outfitters & guides, lodge owners, and fly shops from all over the country meet up, network, and learn from one another but most directly from the leaders of Orvis, one of the oldest and most successful brands in the business.While some of that time is closed to the general public, the Rendezvous this year culminates on Saturday, April 14 in the Down the Hatch Festival from noon onward at Highland Brewing. DTH is a grand celebration of all things fly fishing that anyone can attend…even if the only thing you associate with fly fishing is Brad Pitt backlit by a golden sunset false casting a million times in the classic book-to-film “A River Runs Through It”. (Actually…that means especially you should attend Down the Hatch!) Here are four more reasons not to miss it: Celebrate historyFun Fact: Being in existence for over 150 years, Vermont-based Orvis is not only one of the most revered and respected fly fishing brands in the industry, they are also THE longest-running mail order business in the nation. Also, their Guide Rendezvous is now in its 32nd year and has made Asheville their every-other-year east coast counterpart to the other Rendezvous hub…the fly fishing kingdom of Missoula, Montana. So that alone speaks highly of Orvis seeing Asheville for the trout mecca that it is on this side of the Rockies.Do good Thanks to Klean Kanteen’s partnership with Orvis, the festival is proud to be another “Kick Plastic” event in the ongoing mission to eliminate disposable water bottles. Klean Kanteen will be handing out 500 FREE pint glasses to the first 500 people through the door! Water stations will also be provided by Klean Kanteen to help keep you hydrated as you enjoy Highland Brewing’s tasty suds.Speaking of those Highland beers and doing good, 50 cents of every beer poured will go to several local stream conservation projects headed up by Asheville’s local Land O’ Sky Trout Unlimited chapter. The beers and the “do good” vibes will carry on into the evening where the proceeds from ticket sales for the night’s film festival will also go to the stream conservation projects.Eat, drink, and be merry Just hanging out at this festival and enjoying the sun in the Highland’s meadow will cost you zero dollars, but there will be plenty of delicious food and beer to keep you satisfied throughout the day. And this IS a festival so of course expect to hear great free live music from The Clydes at 12:30 and festival bluegrass headliner The Jakob’s Ferry Stragglers at 4:15. While enjoying the meadow, you’re also going to want to explore the vendors to see all of the latest and greatest equipment, gear, and apparel. And definitely, don’t miss one of the loved highlights of the day…the Guide Olympics!Be inspired (and possibly win big!)The Down the Hatch film festival starting at 7:00 pm inside the brewery is the much-anticipated event to conclude the festival. Not only will attendees be inspired and amazed by a curated collection of some of the world’s hottest and best fly fishing films, but every ticket holder will be entered into the raffle including an incredible range of gear and prizes from festival sponsors and vendors. But the grand prize? A once-in-a-lifetime getaway for two to an undisclosed world-class Orvis adventure destination! Tickets are $15 and can be purchased here. Again the proceeds will go to local WNC stream restoration and conservation projects.For more information and a breakdown of the schedule check it out here! Hope to see you there!last_img read more

Take a holistic path on immigration plan

first_imgCategories: Letters to the Editor, OpinionI suggest that the resolution of America’s immigrant problems requires a more holistic approach. Patches have proven totally ineffective. Immediately initiate reform of E-verify. Assure prosecution of all violators. Undocumented workers and those who hire them have been nearly immune to prosecution. That must end.Use the threat of E-verify to induce the desirable heard-working but illegal immigrants to come in out of the shadows. Offer periodically renewable permanent green cards based on a documented work history and good behavior.That would allow U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement to identify the remaining undocumented individuals as probable subjects for deportation. Many of the remaining people could find refuge from deportation because of student status or supporting family ties and could be provided alternate identification cards.Use this “carrot and stick” approach as a basis to begin a bipartisan debate to develop comprehensive immigrant legislation. It could spark an interest in all political factions to work on a comprehensive solution to a problem long festering in the United States.The multitude of benefits, both to our immigrants and the prosperity of our country, would be manifold.Wallace J.

Libyans die in tribal battle over control of key resources

first_imgBENGHAZI – Three Libyan tribesman have been killed in fighting that grew out of disputes between army units under conflicting orders over who controls key resources in the country’s east, officials said Monday.Another five people were wounded in the fighting between Toubou and Zuwayya tribesmen on Sunday night in Ajdabiya, 160 kilometres (100 miles) south of Benghazi.The clashes were sparked by fighting on Friday between one unit made up of Zuwayya, under the orders of the general staff, and a Toubou unit that takes its orders directly from the defence ministry, an official explained. At stake was control over oil wells and an agricultural water reservoir in Al-Sarir, 600 kilometres south of Benghazi, he added.Five soldiers were killed in the fighting on Friday, and clashes broke out between Zuwayya and Toubou in Ajdabiya the following day after the soldiers’ burial that spilled over into Sunday.The Zuwayya, who are Arab, and the Toubou, who are black, have a long history of conflict.Following the overthrow of long-time dictator Moamer Kadhafi in 2011, tribal unrest broke out in parts of Libya, particularly in the south and west, prompted by a settling of grudges or competition for control of smuggling across the country’s borders.Since Kadhafi’s ouster, Libya’s authorities have struggled to impose their authority and stem rising lawlessness.last_img read more

Football Freshman JK Dobbins prepares for first run through the Big Ten

OSU freshman running back J.K. Dobbins (2) runs a play during the 2017 season opener vs Indiana. OSU won 49-21. Credit: Jack Westerheide | Photo EditorOut with the old and in with the new.As redshirt senior quarterback J.T. Barrett prepares for his final trip through the Big Ten, freshman running back J.K. Dobbins is set to establish his presence in the conference as the catalyst of Ohio State’s offense for years to come.And the Ohio State coaching staff couldn’t be more excited about the future of the first-year running back.“I kind of tempered my emotions with you guys early on because we’ve seen that since spring practice. He’s had a hell of a camp,” Meyer said after the Indiana game. “Not surprised at all [with his performance].”Dobbins’ career began in an almost storybook fashion. With Ohio State traveling to Bloomington, Indiana, to open up its season against Indiana, Dobbins was assigned the start at the last minute with redshirt sophomore Mike Weber dealing with a lingering hamstring injury that kept him out of the starting lineup. The game could not have gone much better for the freshman. He set an Ohio State record for most rushing yards by a true freshman in his debut with 181 rushing yards on 29 carries, adding 24 receiving yards on two catches. “I felt like I was going to do things that I did because I practiced against the best defense in college football every day and then I got a great offensive line,” Dobbins said after the game.Now just two weeks away from kicking off the remainder of the Big Ten season, Dobbins is one of the only offensive weapons the team can count on in conference play. He has undoubtedly been the most consistent performer for Ohio State’s offense this season as Barrett, the wide receivers, the tight ends and the backup running backs have been shaky in their first two games.Despite being so young, Dobbins has been hyped up by members of the coaching staff since his arrival in Columbus and expectations have been placed quite high for him.“This guy has picked it up faster than anybody I’ve ever been around in my 22 years as a true freshman,” running backs coach Tony Alford said on Aug. 18. “He’s picked it up, he understands the offense — the nuances of it — very, very quickly and he plays hard. He goes so hard at everything he does which is part of the culture of this program.”The coaches have praised all aspects of Dobbins’ game, citing his explosive speed, toughness barreling through the defensive line and ability to catch passes. But what has set Dobbins apart from other young running backs in the past is his ability to block.“I would like to think that the hardest thing for incoming freshmen running backs is pass protection,” Alford said. “Not only to protect it but where to go and where they fit and all the different protection schemes and understanding fronts and different blitzes.”So far this season, Dobbins has lived up to the hype. He is second on the team behind Barrett with his 276 all-purpose yards this year and has recorded more rushing yards (253) than the rest of the team combined. He has also accounted for 32 percent of the team’s chunk plays (15-plus yard pass or 10-plus yard rush) to this point, catching an 18-yard wheel route on the second play of his career and rushing seven times for more than 10 yards and gaining 20-plus yards on three occasions. With one loss already in the standings for Ohio State, the Buckeyes will need Dobbins to live up to the hype in his inaugural campaign if the offense is going to put up the points necessary to reach the College Football Playoff. read more
