ACK was recently honored to host a kayak demo at the 2011 Troutfest at Rio Raft Resort in New Braunfels, TX. Troutest is a Fly-Fishing Banquet and Exposition held annually by the good folks at Guadalupe River Trout Unlimited. The funds generated by the Banquet and Expo are used to conserve, protect and restore the cold tailwater fishery immediately below the Canyon Dam on the Guadalupe River.

Troutfest 2011 Demo

The event had a really nice turnout and we got to greet some of our regular customers along with meeting many who were new to kayaking. Many anglers were showing off their fly-fishing skills just a few feet from ACK. We set up a tent with a variety of kayaks on the banks of the  beautiful Guadalupe River to demonstrate the use of kayaks for fly-fishing. A number of anglers were interested in testing out those same skills on a kayak.

Overall, we really enjoyed ourselves and were glad to have made some new friends. We were very pleased to be there to answer questions and were happy to have shared plenty of expert kayak fishing knowledge with the attendees. We look forward to seeing you and all the other folks we met at one of our retail locations soon!
