Troutfest was a blast!! Everything was different this year. More people, more tents, more cars parked in the parking area, and evidently, more money raised for Great Smoky Mountains Nat'l Park. As I was walking back to the truck to muster up all of the tying stuff before I was scheduled to tie, I overheard one of the parking volunteers say that they already had nearly $1,000 in parking donations only a few hours into the event. That is incredible. Again a majority of all money raised this weekend is being donated to Great Smoky Mountains Nat'l Park, youth programs, and fishery projects within the Park. Of course a small portion will be saved for Troutfest 2011.

WBIR Knoxville was there. Here's the article and video... http://www.wbir.com/news/local/story.aspx?storyid=121761

Here's some pictures...














Next year will be even better from what I've heard. It seems like there's more and more people that attend Troutfest each year.

WOW, nice report! Glad to see folks supporting the park. Wished I could have gone but work calls, maybe next year. I would have loved to see Lefty Kreh in person, I have a couple of TFO rods that I love. Would have been nice to say hello to a legend. Looks like you had fun.

I really hope you can come out to Troutfest 2011! Lefty, Bob, and Joe were the nicest fly fishing celebrities you'll ever meet. It's incredible to watch so many people who care about the Park come together to make Troutfest a success every year.
