John Reinhardt. President Great Smoky Mountain TU plans to release the hounds this Thursday with a shotgun start for the "IRON MAN FLY CONTEST 2017". “Are you practicing?..."fuh getta bout it” says the IRON MAN ringmaster. The judges are cooking up ideas to confuse and befuddle the tiers,” says Reinhardt. “If you have the nerve to toss your hat in the ring, be sure to bring your vises, tools, thread, and a light if you use one. All the fly tying material will be provided once the judges are through stripping cars, shaving wildlife and accumulating the craziest stuff to tie with that you have ever seen.” says Reihardt.
Everyone else you are invited to come out to see the tying madness that goes on as they go head to head with each other to win some great gear while "Tying for a Cause". Help send a child to camp while laughing the night away, no admission charge, free to all. The IRON MAN is Thursday, January 19th, 2017 at 6 P.M. and join us as the Great Smoky Mountain Trout Unlimited chapter holds one of the most fun packed, fly tying contests of the year. This annual event is being held again at the Blackhorse Pub & Brewery at 4429 Kingston Pike in Knoxville, TN.
