grtu_tf_2017png-294x300After taking a year off, the Guadalupe Trout Unlimited chapter is bringing back the annual Troutfest. This year finds the festivity relocating to the Lazy L&L campgrounds (secretly my favorite spot on this stretch of the water) from February the 17th thru the 19th.

Whether you’ve just taken up fly fishing or are a seasoned veteran, this event is a great way to learn new skills, try out gear, or simply catch up with fellow anglers from all across Texas.
