My first fly rod was bought at Gruene Outfitters as a gift from my wife many years ago. Since then they have been purveyors of local tips and tricks for trout, folks willing to put up with my sometimes manic reports of the day’s fishing (a kindness  that i don’t take lightly), as well as friends.

They’ve finally made the bold move to expand their business and are having a grand opening at their new location in San Marcos dubbed Hays County Outfitters this Friday. While they may not have fly fishing hardware proper, i’m sure it’s going to rock. After all, who knows when you might need that Howler Bros. guayabera before heading out to pound the coves of Canyon Lake for white bass?

It’s pretty much gauranteed to be a fun time because one flyer i saw mentioned that the festivities are going from 4PM-?. That question mark is always a good sign.

(P.S. I’m hoping to make it down and will be giving away free schwag if i can get there in time. Follow us on Facebook and Twitter  for your chance to win prizes.)
