As a hill country native, Chris has been fishing and exploring Texas rivers and streams since before Gruene Outfitters was born. A few days a week you can find him in the fly shop giving casting instruction, rigging equipment, or telling a good fishing story. If you are interested or curious about fly fishing don't hesitate to come in and pick his brain. When he's not at Gruene Outfitters he's guiding fly fishing trips on all the beautiful waterways in Texas, or enjoying a beer next to a BBQ pit while cooking up some fine grub. We are thankful to have him as a resource and team member of Gruene Outfitters. Fish. Beer. Repeat.
Maggie joined us from Austin, TX and oversees the purchasing for tackle and women's technical apparel. Originally from Dallas, Maggie is a graduate of Southern Methodist University. Growing up, she spent many summers vacationing with family in Colorado where she acquired a love for the mountains and streams...so much so, that she returned to complete guide school in Vail, CO with Vail Valley Anglers for an experience of a lifetime! While Maggie spent many years working in the corporate world in Commercial Real Estate, she's no stranger to the Fly Fishing industry or Retail environment. It was ultimately her adventurous spirit and passion for the outdoors that brought her back to both.
Maggie has experience in Retail Sales, Merchandising, Purchasing & Receiving, and Inventory Management. Her favorite part of her job, however, is developing relationships with vendors and anglers in the Fly Fishing community. Maggie is also very passionate about growing our women's angling group, "Fly Girl Society," and volunteering with local youth initiatives. Maggie got her start learning how to fly fish for none other than Texas Hill Country bass...but she is looking forward to gaining more knowledge about coastal fly fishing and dialing in her saltwater skills. Redfish...watch out! When not in the shop, you'll likely find Maggie listening to country music, exploring new waters, or out hiking and camping with friends.
