Troutoberfest 2013

Pre Tying garb...Barvarian Redneck style

The second annual Troutoberfest in Roscoe, NY was October 12+13, 2013.  Last years event was good, but this year was over the top.  Fishing tournament, Orvis vs. Hardy cook-off, Tiers galore, two days of jam packed seminars and classes, and a pig roast to close the event on Sunday.  Shop manager Matt Nelson and Shop Owner Evan Lavery went above and beyond your typical shop sponsored event.  This truly was a "Fest".  I was glad to be a part of it and I look forward to next year.  A special thansk to William Anderson and Eric for putting up with my antics and being willing to tie next to me.  Always nice to see John Shaner, Lance Hidy, Pat Cohen, and Eric Reed.  As has been the norm for me lately fishing was a bust.
