The Dream Trip Raffle

Each year the Rabun Chapter participates in the Georgia Council of Trout Unlimited’s “Dream Trip” raffle. The Dream Trip reaches new heights. The opportunity to fish with John McGarity and stay in his fabulous log cabin conveniently located between the Madison River, Yellowstone National Park and the Henry’s Forkputs you smack dab in the middle of some of the most famous trout waters in North America. John is the consummate trout angler, fishing almost every day of the five or six months each year he resides in Idaho. Blue Ribbon Flies in West Yellowstone checks with John for fishing reports. Having been a restauranteur, John is also an excellent cook. You will not go hungry on this trip! TU couldn’t ask for a better host and guide for this year’s Dream Trip.

Each winner receives:

  • Choice of Winston BIII-x or Sage ONE 4, 5 or 6 wt rod
  • A fly reel with Scientific Angler line
  • A fly box and flies for the trip (Approx. 5-7 dozen per box)
  • $500 total in travel expenses – travel arrangements will be the responsibility of the winners. *Fishing licenses, gratuities, and alcoholic beverages will be the responsibility of the winners during their stay.

Dream Trip raffle tickets are $10 each. There are also many runner-up prizes! Proceeds benefit TU Coldwater Conservation and Georgia Trout Camp.
