Launched with intentional lack of fanfare, the Southern Trout Magazine’s first every Shootout closes on December 31st. What is it you ask? Good question.
We’ve made special arrangements with Thomas & Thomas Rod Company to give away five of their new 9’ 4wt fly rods. The catch? Well in a moment of divine inspiration, we here decided to hold a contest pitting the sixty or so Trout Unlimited chapters against on another to see who could sign up the most people to receive a free subscription to STM. We divided the southeast into five regions: GA/SC, TN/KY, NC, VA, and WV/MD. Each region has roughly the same number of chapters.
We made it simple. Even if you receive STM, your vote counts. Upon the conclusion of the contest on December 31st, the winners will be announced. So far voting has been brisk. A quick look revealed the following leaders at this point
GA/SC Blue Ridge TU Chapter
NC Hickory TU Chapter
VA Little Stone River TU Chapter
TN/KY Appalachian TU Chapter
WV/MD Capital TU Chapter
Winners of the rods get a very nice auction item for a fundraiser. For more info go to https://www.tushootout.com/ or www.southerntrout.com
