  • Dream Trip 2018

    Five days and six nights of fishing and food in the Madison River/Henry’s Fork area for only $10.

    Trout Unlimited Rabun Chapter is now selling raffle tickets to our annual Dream Trip giveaway. The proceeds go towards TU good deeds such as the popular Trout Camp for kids.



    The grand prize goes to one winner, but that one winner brings along a buddy and both of them each get a custom rod.

    Remember, in addition to the grand prize, there are over a dozen runner-up prizes. In other words, even if you don't win the Dream Trip, you still can win one of the dozen plus other prizes. The year before last, I won the TFO reel and it's sweet. Lots of chances to win!

    These make excellent gifts and you don't have to be present to win. We accept Paypal and checks, and the winners will be drawn at the Hoot on the Hooch in Helen in March 2018.

    If you're interested, PM me and I'll be happy to get you a ticket (or five). Thanks for supporting your trout waters!

      Bump for a worthy cause and something that would make a fine stocking stuffer.

Look at it... a young trophy wife, in the parlance of our times, you know, and she, uh, uh, owes money all over town, including to known pornographers, and that's cool... that's, that's cool, I'm, I'm saying, she needs money, man. And of course they're going to say that they didn't get it, because... she wants more, man! She's got to feed the monkey, I mean uh... hasn't that ever occurred to you, man? Sir?"- The Big Lebowski 1998

          Preesh, Bonedog. Yeah, if anyone's looking for a last minute gift, I'm happy to mail the tickets directly to the recipients so that they get there in time.

          Also, and I should have mentioned this in the OP, TU bylaws state that we can only sell these tickets within Georgia.

            This definitely supports a great cause - The Trout Camp. It brings youth into our sport. It's amazing that $ 10,000 is raised to support the camp. Mack Martin definitely has this down to fine art.

            If you can guarantee to sell me a "winning" ticket - I will purchase one from you. 5 years I've bought tickets and won notta thing.

              Ha, I wish I could. All I can tell you is that each year, the tickets I've sold have seen at least one winner. That's about the best I can do!

                              Was the drawing today? Doubt I won the dream trip, but I could use some of the lesser prizes. Ha.
