On behalf of the Great Smoky Mountain Trout Unlimited Chapter #47, we wish to congratulate these TU 5 River members embarking on a great adventure. It has a personal connection for our chapter as we have been a part of the growth and participation in the University of Tennessee’s 5 Rivers chapter “Vols on the Fly." Even more importantly, we are honored to have become friends and fellow TU members with two of this year's 5 Rivers members who are getting ready for a journey of a lifetime. Brett Winchell and Matt Crockett epitomize exactly what Trout Unlimited hopes to achieve in our future leaders. During their association with the Great Smoky Mountain chapter, they stepped up to the plate for every request we asked of them. Engaging in volunteer work with children or veterans, designing and producing videos that have been a major part of our media efforts not only for our chapter but also this year's Southeast Regional in Gatlinburg, TN.
