Fishing in Marietta

A Roswell native, River Through Atlanta owner Chris Scalley grew up on the Chattahoochee River, which he proudly still calls home. It's not unusual for Chris to spend 200 days or more on the Hooch, as he and his affiliate guides constantly lead fly fishing instruction, boat trips, and wading trips on the river. Because of his lifetime of experience, Chris has accumulated a unique knowledge of the local ecology, behavior of the trout, and how frequently they vote on American Idol. Though he has fished at destination rivers all over the world, Chris still feels that the Hooch holds its own with regard to angling and aesthetics. To preserve these aesthetics, Chris led efforts to protect the Chattahoochee and its sport fishery, earning him recognition in 2007 as a Hero of Conservation in Field & Stream.

The 4,500 acres of land at Burnt Pine Plantation are a constantly evolving hunting and fishing campus. In spring, it's turkeys. In fall, the focus shifts to deer?which visitors can hunt with shotguns, arrows, primitive weapons, and the optional assistance of a guide. Quail take to the sky most of the year, while a five-stand course offers a clay alternative to the birds. With so much to do, a hunting trip to Burnt Pine Plantation often necessitates multiple days. Luckily, an onsite lodge houses 26 beds, and a restaurant hosts dinner.

Since 1997, captain Cy Grajcar has trawled the rivers and lakes of northwest Georgia. Over that time, he has developed a specialty for hauling up striped, hybrid, and white bass from lakes and rivers where they congregate, even setting records for some the monsters that he's reeled in. As a guide, he invites clients aboard his trusty 22-foot Palm Beach Center Console where all fishing gear is provided and ferries them off to the spots on Lake Altoona, Carters Lake, and rivers throughout the region where he's found reliable success. On the water, Cy shares instruction for how to draw in fat, picture-worthy fish using sound baiting, casting, and reeling technique, as opposed to just dangling a slice of chocolate cake in the water.

The instructors at Southern School of Snow Sports have developed an unusual, dry-slope training method, insisting that you don't need actual snow to master the basics of snow sports. So what's their alternative? A "white carpet" made of skiable turf. The slick, pliable material makes for an excellent practice surface?perfect for mastering how to turn and slow down. The instructors lay it down on gently sloping hills at local middle schools and high schools, where they complement their tutorials with lessons on proper safety and yeti avoidance.

Equipment: Johnny G Spinner/Keiser cycles, aqua jogger belts, water aerobic equipment Students should bring: Water Average class length: Two hours Number of Staff: 1?5 Class location: Outdoors only Established: 2011 Registration required: No Good for beginners: Yes Guests allowed: Yes Parking: Parking lot Q&A with Saidah Kinerman, Instructor/Owner Exercise is challenging, and people frequently give up on their fitness routines. How do you keep clients motivated? I offer a variety of different exercises to meet all fitness levels. I believe the most important thing is self efficacy. It is my goal that everyone participating in class will be able to complete at least one exercise well. There is also a lot of peer support from other class members and encouragement from the instructor. Sweating to the oldies is acceptable, but sweating to the blues less so. Do you find that certain styles and genres of music generate more intense workouts? Definitely, most of the music that is played in class is pop and today's top hits. Mainly upbeat current tunes. Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover? This class combines cycling with core routines and high intensity water workouts. I relocated from California where fitness fusion is common. This class is offered in the world-renowned Piedmont Park in Midtown Atlanta, is convenient, and offers a total body workout.
