I attended my first TroutFest yesterday and I thought it was great! I'm sure I walked by many of you here but don't know your faces. I was able to meet JoeFred and his son and see JF's work. Very nice people and very great work JF is doing with his maps. Ian and Charity Rutter were very nice and had a great presentation on Hazel Creek. I was also fortunate enough to meet Jim Casada and attend his seminar on "Back of Beyond", which was a real treat. Jim is a true son of the smokies and a pleasure to be around. To top it off I was taught fly casting by none other than Bob Clouser and Lefty Kreh! Man, what a day!!!
Thanks to all those that make TroutFest possible and keep up the great work.
