  • Frank's Fly Arts
    Reservations/Appointments: Required Established: 2008 Staff Size: 2–10 people Average Duration of Services: 1–2 hours Parking: Parking lot Handicap Accessible: Yes Recommended Age Group: All Ages Most Popular Attraction/Offering: Drift boat fly-fishing trips and lessons Q&A with Michael Frank, Fly Fishing Guide and Instructor What is the one feature of your business that you're most proud of? My ability to teach newcomers the casting skills, fishing tactics, and fish-finding skills they need to be successful during their time on the water. The words of praise from world-traveled fly fishers and newcomers alike thanking me for providing them with an interesting, unexpectedly exciting real fly-fishing tour in a part of the world where they might least expect it. What’s your favorite part of your job? Having the pleasure of meeting dedicated fly fishermen from here in South Carolina and around the world, and being able to share the unique resource of the three rivers of Columbia, South Carolina, with them. [The three rivers] are part of the Santee-Cooper river system, which was the first in the world in which striped bass successfully reproduced in a landlocked setting without access to the ocean. I really enjoy watching newcomers hook and land their first fish using the training and practice they have had with me. I love being able to be an advocate for our rivers and for their protection and conservation. It is especially rewarding for me when young clients on parent-child trips take an interest in the insects and other organisms present in the rivers that our fish depend on for food and grasp the importance of keeping the rivers clean for their benefit and the continued health of our fish populations and other wildlife. When it comes to fly-tying lessons, my favorite part is the spark of recognition on a student's face when they realize that they are able to do it, and the pride they take in producing a cool-looking, buggy representation of a living fish food. I like that parents who may have been skeptical about this activity for their children and their ability to maintain focus often realize just how engrossing the whole process of tying a fly can be for a child. A few years ago, I tied flies at a boat show in New York. When I do these events, I will often sit people down and have them tie a simple fly. Two older gentlemen at the booth next to ours commented on how many kids were interested in trying it. They couldn't believe that the Nintendo Generation was so interested in something so hands-on and non-digital. Have you ever been a patron of your own business? If so, what was the most enjoyable part? I was lucky enough to have my second guide row the drift boat down the river for me a few times. The most enjoyable part was that I could fish and did not have to row. It was a special feeling being given the royal treatment and having someone else position the boat perfectly, allowing me to cast to the best spots. It gave me a better appreciation of what I provide my clients when we're on the water. Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover? I am a full-time teacher, and in my tying lessons, I provide individual help to make sure students leave with the basic skills to continue tying flies of their own. A lesson usually includes a digital demonstration of tying the fly we are working on in that class, followed by hands-on, step-by-step [instruction]. Once the first fly is complete, we will tie another together, and as students feel ready, they can move ahead at their own speed, tying more flies of the same style in whatever color they like. Students usually end up tying two to four flies in a typical two-hour class, and I also try to make sure I tie enough so that each student gets one to take home as a model. Students who bring their own thumb drive can also take the digital presentation with them so that they have the step-by-step instructions to work from at home.

  • South Carolina State Museum Foundation
    Though built in 1893 to manufacture textiles, the Columbia Mills’ storied stone halls now weave tapestries of knowledge with exhibits on everything from lasers and space travel to South Carolina's role in the Civil War. Boasting accolades by Columbia Metropolitan magazine and the Smithsonian, South Carolina State Museum devotes each of its four floors and part of its fourth dimension to art, cultural history, natural history, and science and technology represented by more than 70,000 artifacts. Through a series of permanent exhibits, curators lead visitors on a cultural and geological voyage. Guests stroll through years of traditional and contemporary art by state artists, marvel at a 43-foot white shark display and full dinosaur skeletons, or cast imaginations back in exhibits on turn-of-the-century transportation, laser technology, and aviation. The museum also excavates the surrounding landscape to present 14,000 years of local culture in Native American tools and colonial-era lifestyle items. Five galleries also house changing exhibits featuring assemblages of artifacts from Civil War–era Charleston or 300 years of American-made telescopes, each carefully monitored to ensure they contain just the right amount of science. While museum staffers frequently rotate their exhibits, they also host traveling displays and send others on the road through the Traveling Exhibits Program. Various education displays such as interactive children's labs, living-history reenactments, and lectures from visiting scholars further enrich all-ages visitors.

  • EdVenture Childrens Museum
    When visitors step into one of the South's largest children's museums, there's one thought that commonly crosses their minds: That's a big kid. Waiting to greet them is a 40-foot-tall statue of EDDIE, a reinforced, molded-plastic boy who weighs 17.6 tons and—like almost everything at EdVenture Children's Museum—is ready for kids to explore. After they've climbed inside his heart, up to his brain, and slid down his intestines—all while learning about their own bodies—kids race to explore the rest of the museum's more than 350 hands-on activities contained within nine exhibit galleries. As a testament to its attractions, EdVenture Children's Museum received the 2011 National Medal for Museum and Library Service, an honor given to only 10 libraries and museums in the nation. Past Eddie, EdVenture’s permanent exhibits include the World of Work, where kids climb aboard a John Deere tractor, take the helm of a 24-foot fire truck, and learn the value of money by spending Eddie Bucks on groceries or flooding the market to undermine the local economy. At the Aha Factory, wee ones recycle everyday items into paper snowflakes, pipe-cleaner butterflies, and glitter-encrusted egg cartons. Children 3 and younger, meanwhile, can explore the My Backyard exhibit, an age-appropriate haven of soft surfaces.
