We are proud to announce our featured guests at this year's expo John Godwin "Duck Commander's Duckmen" of A&E's Duck Dynasty.
Chuck Farneth grew up in Pennsylvania fishing for trout in lakes and streams at 6 years of age. His desire to take on the challenge of catching a trout on a fly began at 10, and two years later he accomplished the task and has been hooked ever since. That was 49 years, hundreds of miles of water, and many lost flies and broken lines ago.
