    Thank you to everyone who came out to "IRON MAN FLY CONTEST 2019" at DEAD END BBQ! We hope everyone had as good a time as we did "TYIN FOR A REASON". The tiers entry fees and donations will help us send a child to "TROUT CAMP again this year. The house was packed and standing room only as the tiers battled it out again this year. We will be posting pics and info in the coming week here and on our Great Smoky Mountain TU website.

    A shout out to our dedicated sponsors and volunteers of course who make it all possible. Thank you to Don Kirk and Southern Trout Magazine, Little River Outfitters, Smoky Mountain Angler, 3 Rivers Angler, and Orvis-Sevierville who have been a part of this event since day one four years ago. Also a big round of thanks to those who come out and support this event and cheer the tiers on each round. Every year the level of competition gets better as they compete for fly rods, reels and the latest gear on the market, and makes stumping them a challenge. Thanks to our GSM TU officers Bruce McNiel and Robert Ogle for their work. Also thanks to our judges Dave Carson-Little River Outfitters, Chad Fouts-Smoky Mountain Angler, and Brett Winchell & Matt Crockett of 3 Rivers Angler.

    I am proud to say this year our #1 winner is a young lady who came in the top four last year and this year returned and became our first woman to be top competitor. Thanks to all our tiers and here is the winners list.
    1. Katelyn Hillmyer
    2. Mike Bryant
    3. Will Davis
    4. David Harrell-Creative Award

    Check out the blindfold round video on Instagram below from Chad Fouts!
