October 16, 2013

Ethan Arkansas 2013A big Rabunite Waaa-WHOOO! for Ethan Scoggins (Coosa Valley Chapter), whose essay was chosen as a runner-up in the Trout Unlimited NATIONAL Essay Contest!

Ethan wrote about his experience at Trout Camp, reminding us just how much camp can mean to a teen and of the healing power that we all find in rivers. “What an amazing, friend making, fishing, learning, good food eating week it was!” he writes. But he also reflects on the experience in light of his father’s illness and heart transplant.

Read the essay on the TU national website.

Way to go, Ethan!

Apr 6: Rabunite 101!

Ever wanted to try your hand at fly-fishing for trout but never learned the in’s and out’s of it? 

Ever wonder why some people seem to get so “hooked” on it?

Now’s your chance! The Rabun Chapter of Trout Unlimited is planning a half-day fly-fishing seminar for adults. More info here. 

 

Wildcat Creek Road Closed

A popular stocked trout stream in Rabun County, Wildcat Creek, will have its trout stockings delayed for several weeks this spring due to the closure of Wildcat Creek Road. The US Forest Service has closed this road due to a landslide that occurred this winter. Details here.

Rod Raffle!

Once again, Mack Martin of the Atlanta Fly Fishing School has graciously donated a custom-built fly rod and reel to the Rabun Chapter to be used for fund raising.
