Troutfest 2017 will take place February 17, 18 and 19, 2017 at the Lazy L&L Campground in New Braunels, TX. The banquet will be February 17 at the Pavilion at the Lazy L&L with cocktails starting at 6pm.

While there are numerous reasons to attend and support this effort, here’s our shot at a top ten list: 

1. A great new venue, the Lazy L&L Campgrounds right on the Guadalupe River. The banquet at The Pavilion at the Lazy L&L will feature a covered, heated seating area and food and bar component.

2. Buy tickets on or before Novemember 30, and you will be entered into a drawing for a float trip for two on the Guadalupe River guided by Chris Johnson of Living Waters Fly Fishing, one of the premier guides in Texas. One entry per ticket or per $50 spent on merchandise.

3. You will get to hear from keynote speaker, Kirk Deeter, Editor of Trout Magazine and Vice President of Trout Media for Trout Unlimited.

4. There are great auction items and raffle prizes from some of the top fly fishing manufacturers, outfitters and guides in the business.

5. You care about passing our tradition of fishing and conservation on to future generations and proceeds from Troutfest are the main source of support for GRTU’s Youth Programs and Initiatives.

6. This year corporate and group tables are available, so you can get your company or a group engaged in supporting GRTU.

7. You want to meet and hear from celebrity guests and presenters, like George Daniel of Living on the Fly, guide and instructor Wanda Taylor, Steve Galletta, Co-Owner of Bighorn Angler and Jen Ripple, Editor-in -Chief of Dun Magazine.

8. The exhibit will feature casting instruction from IFFF certified Casting Instructors and Master Casting Instructors. The exhibit will also feature women only and kids only casting instruction sessions.

9. You know you currently do not have plans on February 17, 18 and 19, 2017.

10. You believe in supporting Project Healing Waters, Casting for Recovery and Reel Recovery and proceeds from Troutfest help support these organizations.

11. You know that being a member of GRTU is not just about what you get from the river, but what you give back to it. And this is the perfect opportunity to give back while learning, engaging and having a great time.
