HOWLER DISPATCH: Headed North

Posted on June 21, 2018

Well, the first week was pretty unbelievable down on the Gulf Coast, but we were excited to head north. After spending a day in Grayton Beach State Park we headed up to Atlanta, Georgia to hangout with our friends at High Country Outfitters. We had a great time grilling burgers for our new friends down in the ol’ ATL. Thanks to everyone who came out!

The next day after doing some SUP Yoga on the Chattahoochee, we headed up to Blue Ridge, Georgia to toss some hoppers for some giant  Blue Ridge ‘bows. It was pretty unbelievable watching fish after fish hammer dry flies in the creeks of north Georgia. A huge thank you to Blue Ridge Fly Shops for hooking us up. That was a day we won’t forget!

Next it was off to the best state in the whole bag of 50. The great state of Tennessee! We kicked off our stay in our home state at a buddy’s cabin up in Tellico Plains. If you ever find yourself in lower east Tennessee, take a drive up the small back road up Tellico and make sure to stop at Bald River falls. It’s a sight to see. We headed up to Knoxville for the trade show the following day.

Knoxville is a pretty awesome place. It’s just a short drive to Smoky Mountains, several lakes, and some great rivers. We got to enjoy a cool view of the smokies while zip lining over the treetops with the great people at Climb Works. An awesome experience.  

We had some killer food (best Mexican food is definitely El Mezcal) and enjoyed spending time with our family and friends at the local Bearden Beer market and out on lake Loudon. We finished the week off by chowing down on some shrimp with some family.

Thanks to everyone who continues to let us crash, buys us beer, messages us recommendations. It is greatly appreciated!! Cheers
