We are just days away from hands down the Southland’s Trout Unlimited event of the year, says John Reinhardt, president of the Smoky Mountains Chapter of TU.
“The 2017 Southeast Regional Meeting of Trout Unlimited is back in Tennessee for the first time in almost six years,: notes Reinhardt. “The planning for this event is a year in the making and we have worked hard with TU members across the state to showcase our people and our mountains. Gatlinburg, TN will be our host city and they are ready to welcome our Trout Unlimited members and families from across eight states as we gather at the base of the Great Smoky National Park.”
"Our mission from day one was to make this annual event like no other. The agenda for the event workshops and seminars has something for everyone no matter the age or interest. Of course, no event is complete unless fishing and fun is a part of the weekend. Come early on Friday as we host a day of fishing taking our visiting fellow Trout Unlimited members into the Park as we chase wild brown, brook, and rainbow trout."
“Saturday night the fun continues as we host a BBQ inside the park next to a mountain stream,” says Reinhardt “An evening of fellowship, great Tennessee BBQ and of course surprises awaits our guests and friends.”
