Event: Matt Quinn, Bristol Anglers
Scooter grew up in a military family moving all over East TN to eastern NC. He developed a love for fly fishing when he moved here about 15 years ago. Scooter is a self-taught angler and fly tier. He has fly patterns with Montana Fly Company. He became a full-time guide in 2010 and enjoys every aspect of fly fishing. Most of all, he enjoys the people he gets to talk to and row down the river with while teaching them new things and making them better anglers.

Elk Creek Restoration
In February 2022 on a very cold and blustery day, several members from BRTU and Boy Scout Troop 722 from Winston-Salem planted a restoration project along Elk Creek. The efforts are showing a great deal of progress in reduction of siltation in the creek. Thank you to everyone who volunteered and helped out that day.
