ROSCOE, NY — Fisherwomen and fishermen headed to Roscoe last weekend to partake in many activities at the 2nd annual TroutoberFest. Sponsored by The Beaverkill Angler, Hardy, Orvis, Umpqua, Cortland, Patagonia and others, the event was an opportunity for anglers from as far away as Florida and Maine to gather and learn about new techniques, try out equipment, engage in a sanctioned fishing tournament and learn to fly fish.
