SEWE is partnering with Orvis this year to bring a variety of exciting demonstrations and exhibits to both Brittlebank Park and The Gaillard Center. From fly fishing experts to leaders in the dog training industry, we are confident the below will be at the top of your SEWE 2020 bucket list.
DOG DEMONSTRATIONS WITH ORVIS AND MOSSY POND RETRIEVERS
Witness gundogs work their magic as Brad Arington, an Orvis-endorsed Hunting dog trainer from Mossy Pond Retrievers in South Georgia, presents retriever demonstrations on Friday at 3:30 pm, Saturday at 3:30 pm and Sunday at 1:30 pm at Brittlebank Park. Swing by the Orvis booth and sign up for the free Orvis dog club and take home complimentary swag for your pup or try your hand at corn hole to win fabulous prizes. Even more, enter to win a restored Toyota Land Cruiser as it makes its stop at Brittlebank Park.
FLY FISHING ON THE ORVIS LAWN
Orvis will be offering complimentary fly fishing casting lessons all weekend on the front lawn at the Gaillard Center. Try your hand at angling or improve upon your skills with the fly fishing professionals on-site. On Sunday, legendary angler Tom Rosenbauer will be demonstrating fly casting all day.
In addition, famed fishing artist Tim Johnson, who works with Orvis, will be hand burning images into the cork grip of limited edition fly rods. Visit Tim inside the Gaillard at the SEWE Marketplace to choose from either a brown trout rising to a mayfly or a bonefish pursing a crab – subtle changes make each rod unique in this series.
