Just for the fun of it, Overmountain Chapter of Trout Unlimited is hosting a fly casting competition—the Tennessee Throwdown, on Saturday, Oct. 6, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Winged Deer Park, 209 Carroll Creek Road, Johnson City.
Contestants are asked to take their own 9-foot 5-weight rods with typical 5-weight floating line, to be used in the accuracy part of the competition. For the distance contest, a designated rod will be provided.
Cost is $5; the Throwdown is open to anyone 17 or older, but advance registration is required. Two of the 30 contest spots are reserved for each of the eight TU chapters in Tennessee. To sign up, click here. The money will be collected later. For more information, click here.
After the competition, lunch will be provided and awards will be presented; the event will end at 3. If you have any questions, please contact Jeff Wright at firstname.lastname@example.org or (636) 734-2055.
