The Brookie that you see above was done in preparation for my showing at this year’s TROUTFEST which will take place over in Townsend, Tennessee on the weekend of May 16th and 17th.
Troutfest is a Fly Fishing Exposition and Fundraiser held in the Great Smoky Mountains. All profits earned from this event minus some seed money for next year’s event are donated to Great Smoky Mountains National Park Fisheries Department for brook trout restoration and other fisheries projects in the park. The Little River Chapter of Trout Unlimited sponsors this event as their major fundraiser and annual festival. This year the event will be one of the largest venues for fly anglers in the Southeast United States and it should be great fun!
