Giving Thanks

The GA Foothills Chapter of TU enjoys a really nice fringe benefit: one  member just happens to own a fly shop and access to a trophy trout stream! 

Chapter members had a great afternoon fishing Nacoochee Bend, a 1.5 mile section of the Hooch in Helen last week.  Unicoi Outfitters co-owner Jimmy Harris said the gang had some good luck drifting small, natural nymphs deep. His duo’s hot bug was a flashback pheasant tail.

Jimmy would also like to thank his UO associates who volunteered their afternoon to buddy-up with the TU guests, young and old. Those UO staffers were Wes McElroy, Joseph Clark, Grant Barron, Ron Thomas and Atticus Leithner.

A very special thanks goes to one more UO staffer, Israel Patterson, who has a passion for photography.   Enjoy his photos!

Join a TU chapter and get in on the fun, fellowship, and conservation achievements. You’ll be glad you did.  To learn more and join these Foothillsbillies, go here:

During this special week, we sure are thankful for our TU buddies and selfless UO teammates. Have a great holiday yourselves.

PS: we will be closed on Thanksgiving Day for our staff to enjoy time with family and friends. We’ll reopen on Friday for all anxious anglers needing to burn off extra calories with some hiking and wading. Now that’s good exercise!
