smokymtchallengeNow in it’s fourth year, The Smoky Mountain Grand Slam Challenge is an annual fly fishing tournament and banquet held to support Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing and the thousands of injured and disabled veterans the organization serves annually.  It will be held  October 6-7, 2017 in greater Knoxville, TN.

The weekend begins with the Smoky Mountain Grand Slam Banquet at The Foundry in Knoxville, TN.  Local celebrity news anchor John Becker will serve as Master of Ceremonies for the evening and world-renown angler and fly tier Kelly Galloup will return to share his bountiful wisdom and humor as the featured celebrity angler and speaker.   You don’t need to be a fly fisher to enjoy the banquet! The evening will feature presentations, silent auction items, a live auction, great food, and a cash bar.

Saturday October 7th  will see fly fishing tournament action, as twelve injured and disabled veterans participants from around the Tennessee Valley will be paired for some of the areas best guides on the famed Clinch River for a great day fishing for brown trout, brook trout, and rainbow trout.

Tickets are now available and we’re excited to offer a great special:  The first 100 tickets are only $50 while supplies last!  You can learn more about the event and purchase a ticket by visiting The Smoky Mountain Grand Slam Challenge website
