Part of the much anticipated Sugarlands MountainFest in late September is the Battle of Gatlinburg One-Fly Tournament. The one-fly shootout is parented by Sugarlands Distillery as part of its Sugarlands MountainFest Music and Outdoor Festival. The fly fishing tourney is sponsored by the Great Smoky Mountains Chapter of Trout Unlimited and Southern Trout Magazine.
“The Battle of Gatlinburg One-Fly Tournament is a first for Gatlinburg which operates its only trout fishing program,” says John Reinhardt. President of the Great Smoky Mountains TU chapter. “The event will attract the growing number of seasoned fly fishermen from several states. One-fly events like this have become increasingly popular in recent years.”
