Soc Clay Joins Southern Trout Magazine as Mountain Musings Columnist

Post  KirkSouthTrout on Thu Jun 14, 2012 3:22 pm

Veteran outdoor writer, Soc Clay recently agreed to join the Southern Trout Magazine team as columnist. The July/August issue of the publication will feature his first installment of “Mountain Musings” which will be a reflection of his life spent fishing the waters of the South. Perhaps the most revered active outdoor writer in the country, Soc was first published in Field & Stream and Outdoor Life magazines in the 1950s. He was one of the first members of the Southeastern Outdoor Press Association, served as director for the Outdoor Writers Assoc. of America, founder of the Kentucky Outdoor Press Assoc. and is an inductee of both the Freshwater Fishing Hall of Fame and The Legends of the Outdoors Hall of Fame. He is a Poet Laureate of Kentucky.
“Convincing my old mentor to allow us to publish his stories is a real high water mark for Southern Trout Magazine,” says publisher, Don Kirk, who has been a close friend and associate of Clay since the meet on Hazel Creek in the Great Smoky Mountain National Park in the mid-1970s. “Soc is an old school story teller with a perchance for mischief that he has never outgrown. We are of the same tribe as the saying goes.”
A lifelong resident of South Shore, Kentucky, Soc Clay is not only an award winning writer, but is universally acknowledged as a dean of outdoor photographers as well. Over the years his photography has graced the covers of scores of magazines including 11 of 12 issues of the fabled BASSMASTER Magazine in one year!. His latest book SOC CLAY’S MAD TRAPPER SOURDOUGH BAKING BOOK, portrays the romantic history of the use of sourdough starters and recipes used to sustain the rugged men and women of the Gold Rush periods in Alaska. It is the most complete authority for the use of sourdough in baking in the world (www.Whitefish Press.com) .
