Join us in Townsend, Tennessee for the greatest outdoor fly fishing exposition on earth. Troutfest will be held May 18th through the 20th. We are getting close. This years headliners include Lefty Kreh, Bob Clouser, Jason Borger, Anthony Hipps, Zach Matthews and many other talented anglers who will be sharing their fly fishing skills with you.
The Banquet Auction will be held Friday night the 18th. Dinner will be served under the big tent as usual. Then more fun begins, the Auction. There will be many items in the auction but there are two that are very special. One is a bamboo fly rod made by Walter Babb specifically for Troutfest. When you see this rod you will want it. We will also auction a float trip for smallmouth bass for Monday May 21st. Your guide will be Josh Pfeiffer. Your fishing buddy will be Lefty Kreh. Lefty is excited about this. Smallmouth bass fishing is his favorite sport. Josh will meet you and Lefty in Townsend for breakfast then you will float one of our tailwaters for Smallies in Josh's driftboat. You may buy your banquet tickets online HERE.
On Saturday night we will hold a cookout and a special presentation by Jason Borger, How They Made The Movie “A River Runs Through It”. Jason was the stand-in caster and consultant in the movie.
