Orvis Atlanta Offers Fly Fishing Classes For Beginners:If you've always wanted to try fly fishing but never quite knew where to start, then maybe it's time to head to Orvis Atlanta for Fly Fishing 101.

Orvis is the nation's oldest mail-order outfitter, not to mention the longest continually-operating fly-fishing business. The Atlanta retail store, located on Peachtree Road in Buckhead, is offering free Fly Fishing 101 courses on several dates in May and June, during which "students" will learn the basics of fly casting and outfit rigging. People registering for the class don't need to bring any gear, an can sign up in-store or online. The next stop is Fly Fishing 201, which takes rookies out on the water for a chance to catch his or her first fish!

Good Day Atlanta's Paul Milliken took a trip out on the Chattahoochee with Orvis fishing manager Chris Heim, who grew up in Georgia and has been perfecting his cast since boyhood! For more information click here.

Burgers With Buck Illegal Food: From humble beginnings in a pop up location in the Old Fourth Ward, to their brick and mortar location in Virginia Highland, Illegal Food is making burger lovers stop and take notice. Their signature burger, "The Hank", was recognized by Business Insider as the Best in Georgia in 2014. "The Hank" is an homage to owner Steven Lingenfleter's childhood memories of the wonderful cheeseburgers Miss Betty used to make at Red's Roller Drum in LaGrange, Ga. Lingenfelter remembers them as, "the best, ever". He describes "The Hank" as a fancier or more gourmet take on her burger.If you are looking for some great reason why they call it "The Hank", you won't find one. But if you're looking for a great burger with high quality, fresh ingredients, you will find one. In fact, if you're really feeling adventurous, try the "Double Hank".
