    That was April of this year. I believe they plan to do it again around the same time next year.

      The tournament I'm referring to was February 24, "Southern Striper Open" benefiting PHW.

        Jeff Wright, Fly Fishing Manager at Alpharetta Outfitters, spoke at the Atlanta Fly Fishing Club monthly meeting on Nov 14 and indicated that the 2018 striper tournament was a fund raising success and would be held again in 2019. You might call him at the shop to see if any details are available.

              Thanks Mark! I wanted to do this last year, but life got in my way. Hopefully things will line up for next year, and for a good cause to boot!

                Hi Everyone,
                Glad someone brought this up! We're working on SSO 2019 as we speak. We couldn't have asked for a better first year turnout this past February with $3500 raised for PHWFF. Hoping to have an even better turnout this upcoming spring!

                We'll be switching some things up for next year's Southern Striper Open. Look for official details in an "Events" posting shortly.

                Dates for this upcoming tournament will be as follows...
                3/22/19 - Captain's Meeting at AO night before the tournament
                3/23/19 - 1st day of SSO Tournament
                3/24/19 - 2nd day of SSO Tournament finishing at 12pm with award ceremony following
