Sweeping, Strip-setting, and Hooting!

What’s your weekend looking like? Ours is jam-packed.  We’ll be sweeping, strip-setting, and hooting!

First, Jake will lead a platoon of local volunteers to “sweep the Hooch” through Helen. Learn more about the Chattahoochee Riverkeeper’s annual river cleanup program, and consider getting involved in future sweeps.


Next, past champs Jimmy and David will work to bring home the trophy once again.

The Southern Striper Open, sponsored by our friends at Alpharetta Outfitters, benefits our fine vets via the Project Healing Waters program.

Learn more about the event and the vets here:


Last, we will celebrate the weekend by hootin’ and hollerin’ at the GA Foothills TU chapter’s annual banquet in Helen. Food, music, raffles, auctions, and a hundred-plus liars telling fish stories: what more could you want?  C’mon up to Helen on Saturday evening and join the party!


That’s where half our gang will be, while the other half staffs our shops and guides our clients. Where are y’all going?  Stop by either UO shop for some hot flies, breaking intel, and a little bit of fish story-swapping. It will be a hoot!  We hope to see you soon.

Unicoi Outfitters: Friendly. Local. Experts.
