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 purchasing for the fly shop. 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 in May '18 to attend guide school with Vail Valley Anglers. 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 her adventurous spirit and passion for the outdoors that ultimately 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 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 fishing and dialing in her saltwater skills. Redfish...watch out! When not in the shop, you'll likely find Maggie exploring new waters or camping with friends and her most adorable yellow lab, Mack. He's settling into his new role as resident "shop dog" and seems to enjoy the biscuits customers bring him more than their fish tales!
