Down The Hatch Fishing Festival
I'm sure most of my readers are aware that I'm spending a few weeks south this winter. I saw on Facebook last week that Orvis is holding a fishing festival at the Highland Brewing Company in Asheville NC. Being that Asheville is only two hours from where I'm staying I've decided to go.
Here are some links.

And the Orvis page: http://www.orvis.com/downthehatch
They say it will start with the Fishing Olympics- I can only guess what that is, but I'm sure it involves casting. Hopefully some blindfolded knot tying too. The day ends with a film festival. Ticket price is $10 but it includes two beers for anyone over 21, so how can you go wrong?
If you're within striking distance of Asheville you should definitely make the effort to go. If you see me there and we've never met, flag me down and say hello. Some other bloggers such as Cameron Mortenson of The Fiberglass Manifesto will be there, and I'm happy to see that some friends of mine from Michigan who work for Orvis and Scientific Anglers will be there as well. It should be a good time. I hope to see you there.
