Default Matt "Budman" Mathews

For those of you who have been long-time board members, you will remember "Budman" as a poster here. Matt was responsible for the organization of the only message board member meet-up, held at Metcalf Bottoms a few years ago.

Additionally, Matt was instrumental in getting Sweetwater Brewery as a sponsor for Troutfest; Sweetwater donating the beer for the cookout and auction each year of the last three.

It is with very deep sorrow that I must tell you all that Matt passed away, very unexpectedly, on Sunday. His obituary can be read here. His family has asked that tributes be made to the Little River Chapter of Trout Unlimited, or to The Friends of the Smokies. Prayers for his family would be appreciated, I know.

That's just awful news. Nice guy, I'll tip one of those Sweetwater products in his honor at the next Troutfest
