We count on to celebrate all of the segments that we talked about and they categories that we talk about on the Carolina outdoors. But through the week we hang our hats at Jesse Brown says. During this time of year not only are we celebrating Memorial Day in that is kind of an odd way to say it's celebrating Memorial Day but a recognition. Of those who gave their lives for our country. In in duties past at times past but it. We invite you to stop by Jesse Brown where we are also providing great advice for people who are traveling to. Parts of our country in parts of the Carolinas and parts of our world. In these warm weather months says stopped by you need any help or advice. As you begin preparing for your summer travels in summer vacations. Whether it be two debates to the mountains today even. Disney World Don we had some people and Heyward hit Al fitting for Disney World and with the weather lately you're my wanna take a look at a rain jacket. Bat as well we have had quite a rainy may have a weakness where. Well and it just brings the thunderstorms of June that are upcoming. It is a good time for a rain jacket that says chip in at Disney World thing you know while we have people in outfitting if you will for Disney World on ghostly Minnie Mouse. They wanted to see Minnie Mouse but more importantly they didn't want to be sunburned and they didn't wanna have uncomfortable seat so we were able to get on line that was some brand new. Well fitting. Footwear from Jesse browns and I gave them the best that we had you know what the best use for walking around Disney World. K yeah you've listened to this program before I've been in the business world let me tell you what your dogs were remarking that the electorate. Stand in line though wasn't there that there's so much for and we have people going on these wilderness trips all over. The country we have young people who are doing bureau two hours and in that sort of thing the castles of Scotland and wonderful places like that and somebody's doing tinker Bell's counsel if it's exactly slur. So anyway we invite you to stop by. Jesse Brown the other thing Don that we need to bring that we often times talk about and I've got the exact number now. There are thirty Ford delayed harvest strains and lights. In the state of North Carolina yet but the harvesting going to be lower delayed much longer know we're talking toward the ends of your listening to the Carolina outdoors radio. Program or podcast. Right now. Then you just have the next week. To enjoy the delayed harvest programs where the state of North Carolina stocks the strains. In the western part of the state for the most part full of Trout if you will for recreational. Catch and release. First Saturday and you're down. That I am senate reserve group route resorts to catching people or. Have trees supported rules so war and also its youth only till noon on the first Saturday. Is there any hope for any kind of carry over for some of these strains where they stopped. Thousands of fish into home and maybe they all won't be caught out quickly. I've read that 1% you know the one person honors will be survive in Ohio now under a law Barack undercut bank. Somewhere pour away from the easy access points. And will be a few fish survive I think it'd that's a unit that protest open Wall Street several years ago they were talking about the 1% a year ago is that what it was about 1% of the trial haven't gotten. Appear Tibetan protests they get into to go do it on one of our aerial rail line there she is a friend of mine. Where you know what happens is going. Boy that I've got him up for corn mill over coats for Saturday injured we and it would you participate in any Trout harvesting nominee amend those are my friends I'm not gonna murder and I think it is very interesting if you will that that is trap that they stopped. Are purposely stopped and sterile fish they're good in not too. Reproduce. And only are they gonna get eaten or not gonna get to spawn. Not not a good life to be that that Fisher was raised and hatchery it sounds like getting hooked up with a clue that might be the best thing that they had gone over with a it's theater fishermen are an eagle or hawk that maybe he's on usually human use common and you can't tampered as a place. The other thing is bad for first on the first Saturday injured. Well the other thing that we have going on if you're listening to us VNA airway is news 1110. WBP.

About a red bellies slider that eternal different. At those guys it's not all that Logan had no water out. Now you mentioned alligators of course everybody's afraid of alligators what about him. So. Alligators there's not going to be afraid there that don't want anything to. To do that human beings. They've got about 2000 pounds of pressure per square mentioned those choppers and bears. And that's actually what makes me feel pretty comfortable. They're designed. As ambush predators won by one children outlook and anything larger than about. Eager it's something they don't really wanna mess with that it. Well at the majesty of the pal. Our panel next to such an ancient and really ultimately cool creditor. Around you and especially at this on ball may come out there doing their thing here though and back to each other. In the marine life it really adds to the magic of the area. Because it sounds kind of romantic and we need to talk a little bit about this Don Yeager build party where the outdoor gas hanging our heads.

And a guy at all sorts of things bit on Monday he's going to be. Guiding a Black River. Quinn be creek what constitutes. The title of a black water creek or river. So black water is. We totally opposite of Whitewater very low moving water that. It goes slow moving that all believe that ball from the trees down into the creek out and leak their and it acted. Out into the water kind of like a tea bags peeping in hot water. I am in that case it's nice cool outdated water. And it creates this larger bat at you like. Water which looks very black. Announced that we call it black water. Fresh water system. Starts in the coastal plain instead of the mountains where water would run really back down and pop operation interior lot betterment. Sentiment settled that the Bible black or creeks and rivers and land. And the freshwater species abounded all for the orient it really cool place because. Carolina goal the right that was grown in the colonial era the typically ground in black water areas because their title. And fresh water is actually. Less dense and well water but the tide raises the level of the fresh water. Let the right field. All the different mutations in the area and there are a lot and rhetoric can decree. Now this is this is Indy France's Marion national forest. Tell us a little bit about the role he played some good news to get this named after him. How well France's Marion also noted that want boxes actually considered that. Founder of the army Rangers he was the first carries guerrilla warfare tactic and he's one of the reasons that we could defeat the British. In the revolutionary war he actually. Parker and a battle at the queen bee creek bridge. Right next issue brick plantation. Which was. And I actually plantation and then it was a challenge hill now and it's. It's an interesting spread through many of the different. Dana means the South Carolina the ball well and cheaper than. The rough edges than. And in this particular battle is for certain lose ground in 7081. And Thomas Sumpter was the general of the time and Francis Marion came to his aid and they export side and they'll embrace it and in the kubert plantation after crossing in the creek on the bridge and they're trying to remove point. On the bridge. American. Army couldn't follow them but they arrived just in time to come across. But the charge of horses in. Many of the men cannot cap walked across the support beams of the bridge and I ended up trapping him Shubert plantation. Nagy can't answer that. You're gonna Google. Did you you're given us the the real version of Francis Marion but for our Hollywood friends. On the fictionalized account was played by Mel Gibson in the patriot. As well many say Francis Marion. Who inspired. That that character in that Hollywood blockbuster movie. Yeah I made some things right and Namibia I'll say that. Corner opposite definitely trapped by. Well accurately his name in the movie but it apprentice Mary entrapped in through. Guerrilla warfare tactic is the acting supply lines and I actually am at about seventy. From the king street in Williamsburg area that debt trap. Those fellows in the swamp and actually got it nick meant that he was all right. Colonel Carlo and the villain in that community. I was charged with catching them and he wrote for a while later on too weak so trying to chase is accurate want. The same double himself couldn't patent battle. On Barack. And that is one of these stories that your gonna bring forth on this special trip that you are leading Monday may 28 it's a kind of an evening at all. Bomb through coastal expeditions down there.

Come here are there other reasons. Or do you want to reiterate. Their rarity of this occasion down on this cool windy creek. Black water will river in South Carolina. The panel itself has hit. An incredible experience mainly because you know opportunity Powell on black water. And you get experience. He's it was revealed want in the evening. And aggregate darker we see wildlife react to this incredible area and see it in a different light. It doesn't happen often. And timing it would be the last few events to get a little bit everything.

Claim the championship in 201113. Fourteen and were medalist in. And twelve when he 1516. And seventeen but Tucker I have a question for you because we're talking about young people. But talk about gender specific. Clinics and that sort of thing are you split nov boys from the girls. A little bit yet. Not. Little that's certainly not like to because. We want girls to feel comfortable. In in the session setting fishing is it pretty dominantly. And they look like this. What a bar. Donor. Well foundation from really wouldn't hurt in a girl clinic.

Yes absolutely but really it's it's more about teaching in a foundation foundation you don't get expert Kleinsasser. Woman to attend this clinic. We popular herb Miller experience repeat that. Really excited to provide that or. I've Fisher woman otherwise known as an angler. Right track a bit politically correct here now I'll tell us about the content to the competition competitive side of this. Well what's next for those who used five fishing came were they be participating where they problem this year. Yeah. This year we've got a world championship coming up this summer in all. Exciting for our seven kids from the team. And they're gonna get a chance to go over there and compete against the best slot as an oral. And internationally. Europe is really bad again competitive plot fission Arctic. That's correct Eastern Europe in particular arm they dominated the competitive. You bring what what will want their program their state funded so that certainly isn't lottery sources that we might not out. What is what's a water going to be likened in the polish event. So there are stopped and while the Arnott and revert. All the lords and their 10 larger bird there to reverse. And theirs to make been. Of course collect revenues of be a little strange for astute as often get a chance route to practice on likes. Yet we we do we make it very important point to to practice on Mike's. Well so a lot of individual product individually heavily armed particularly are turned. And northeastern. Participants do very well makes it is their where you stood in the north carolinian. You know golf has been played all over the place these days and for tournament golf of course the players will come in and practice of course. Before the actual tournament begins sang with competitive aspect CNET late this being used for a tournament. Often times is opened up for the competitors to command and learn the water and practiced the water with the US east fly fishing team going to a place like Poland. Do they have an opportunity to to practice or get to know the waters in Eastern Europe and Poland before hand. Yeah so that's actually an interesting question we have a cut and an angler. That's not on the current team that are going out this. Portal world ticket and go about that water get to note your life is like in the water and come back. I know that they're beat Joseph report ardent. Everything. I Hostin somebody's got to do a book report. Or a water port assistant. It is just permitted to resist monus fine. It. Okay.

Fantastic Saddam I. People can contact us at Jesse browns have they have an interest in gets signed up as well. Don't get out your fake ID for some US even buses and teams memberships. A rare off that. Gonna take a break and be back with more of the Carolina outdoors. I was back on the Carolina outdoorsman Charlotte's gonna lure wrapped up with the sale of the NFL team here lately fell Barkley and we've miss Baum a couple other. Major sports that are happening around here. Where we want a national championship. Let's celebrate it. What sport with bad days Super Bowl or rugby guy that's exactly and that's what we're gonna talk about. Right now here on the Carolina outdoors but let's get a little break down of the sport of rugby. At least as much as the Al org has indeed. I would have thought Matt thank it would have been considered kind of an upper class sport played at the private schools in Europe maybe. In the northeast but over the last several decades the sport of rugby has erupted especially down here and there. In the football country of the south and southeast in the basketball interest of the Carolinas. Along comes rugby in due in the C. The UNC Charlotte team just won and we're celebrating along with them. Then national title that. Seven national title we're gonna I'd have a little bit about what all of that is. What the team has done the past couple of years. And kind of what they have a coming with their courage John Browne John welcome to the Carolina outdoors. I got shipped. Well congratulations. On the women of the national championship. Yet ninety week we can work it out for a few months so it's. It's nice to see the fruits of how late does come that the altitude at Petit in the play is that out of school very excited about it that such long well and. And I would say not just the past few months because. You posted hard last year and where the runner up to the the eventual title winner Whitewater. Mike Miller the Southern Conference director of competition said that there's a new powerhouse. In the gas RC. But it Don Yeager and I daresay there may be a new national power because this year you knocked off. That rivals that defeated you last year and is this the dawning of a new era in UNC Charlotte. Rugby. Yet it was like thinks sorry you're right we for the last three years we've been slowly. Building the program you know we've been. Lucky that as you mentioned on rugby is growing in the region and a lot of high school played now in North Carolina and shot. Specifically though. Do we get those kids. They come through it and attend UNC Charlotte. So well as peaceful weave it took fighting wrestlers that. Lacrosse players and football players we now have a a basis of some good rugby players so that's that's really helped in the last few years. And then we've really talked about. The coaching skills. And some real expertise. The coaching level. And so those two things combined. That got 222 way that we saw and yet it is not a knock off like war that they. The sixteens and Evans. Champions. So is that it is not to be them as you said it is in the final last year so it felt pretty. I'm not have to admit I've never seen a rugby game and person. I'm gonna come say one now that I know we've got to national champions Kim may have a crash course and what I'm looking now. Yeah and so said the two formats you said that the fifteen aside and seven decides to two different game. In view of the way I'd I'd like to explain it. It's sort of my American friends is fifteen is that more that they ought to Hewitt and then seven more of the mr. McCaffrey. So does the normal speed and I'm pace in the sevens and besides team because. You'd use the same size field and such that the football field. But yet seven of these seven rather sixteen V sixties south of a lot more rooms so. It's it lends itself to more athleticism and speed because you have a lot more room in the seventh aside form. We we play about the type fifteens in the full. Seven in the spring. We we have been pretty successful 23 years in both formats. But seven as well we've really action on the last couple years. Just because of the severity we've got. Some good skill set and so to deduct. Witnesses. I'm now gonna give us some basis so we're got seven on each team obviously we start the game with. Some type of kick off or something but what happens next I mean literally I know nothing of rugby. Yet so so you do that yet it's becoming a full force a couple it's Israel in you know they rugby. Stop with the kickoff. And it really it's about position right by keeping the bowl. It's about defense. Particularly sevens you have to cover a lot of ground you can imagine when 77 guys. So we worked really hard on defense. You are you probably know there's no helmets or padding so it's a very physical. Contact name. And that the fundamental difference we rugby is. Is when you do make that contact is hopeful the whistle goes restock it would be you keep god like they have in school wrote symbols which keeps the poll in play keeps moving collage the opportunity to to to to go again. So if you patient and you defend well keep possession. Then eventually gaps put out because so much space on the field sevenths so that but that's Condit the woman secret. Just seven of ought to be too much to judge what tremendously. How tough talk a learner. The voice there is John Brown he is the carriage of Charlotte's UNC. Seat 49ers rugby team they'd just won the national championship this is for the first time. In team history and John of course in 26 mean this Evans took place in the Olympics for the for the first time I do believe said this is now an Olympic sport. And you mentioned. You can't have the growth growth of the sport and the easier recruitment of players to human species Charlotte's rugby team. But tell us about the makeup of this championship team. Is it is it made up of people from the Carolinas. From around the world. Who are the players and why and how did they get this title. You know you know that's that's very insisting and that we we we wedge quite proud of the fact that. Podsquad he's from north to the foul line. So we we don't. We don't offer a scholarships we don't recruit deceased players we really try and find. Comprised in the Carolinas all we can planes from other sports. And so one of the things that was was. Pretty exciting for us what everybody was from from north count on you know. This is basically students. That attend UNC shot I read the is confident a secondary thing for them so. That the makeup of the team. Is local pizza shop that they got the guys from Greensboro. And we have and expect we have we have plays at the plate in the high school. One of top players. Tyreke Huntley is. Track and field. Saw that converted. Michael Batman and the media cast as they call and he's a converted soccer player. And that you know we have wrestlers without the rest as because there at the strong and powerful and it began nicely. And then we had some some kid that played at the end and wanna pursue that. They. So it's a real product mix of talent that we have in the team. And really is it's all back. He is catapult in the again. And really working hard on them generally as a team to bring that. Let this is abruptly this week. Well the this the championship I should say took place out in Denver did dark Carolina boys have any trouble. Obviously they didn't have any trouble with altitude but do you have time to acclimate when you go out there or did you just go out there and play. Yes actually a couple of days. Two for that purpose so on the first they're out there. We had between what them pretty hard that each trying to get them a privatized. We had them running this. We actually after the red rocks app defeat out there and we had to run in the trial and using some of the steps. We actually how about how does a lot so that was a win that by Friday.
