This ol' girl decided to roll around in the mud ... this is the last time I photo one out of the water, or at least I should have taken notice of the surroundings.

Anyway, after some much larger browns, this bow impressed me the most.

I love the reel, very light weight for its size (3.2oz) I am totally hooked on Ross, I just ordered no.4 from LRO it is a limited edition realtree camo version. I can't wait to see it. The rod was built by Mike Damon, from Potsdam, NY. it is a 5wt 7'6, He also built me a 8wt 9' for landlocked stripper and any thing else I might get into. I found out about a month ago he quit building rods, what a shame.

Here is one of the many "cookie-cutter" browns that fell victim to the stripper midge this weekend. And I did mean to say "stripper".

OK, I'm going to cheat. The fish I posted earlier this month was pretty wimpy so I'm replacing it with a nice one caught on Halloween Day. Little River #16 BHPT

David,
I can see I am going to have to head west and try the Cumberland and the Caney. It seems as if you really get into some nice fish. What about winter fishing on the above mentioned river?

Winter fishing is great because it really cuts down on the crowds. One of my best days on the Caney in the last year was a day where the temp never got over 22 or 23 degrees. I was the only one on the river and enjoying every minute of it...

Teach me! Haha I want a slice of the pie! I couldn't imagine wading when it's that cold, I'd be wearing so many layers that I couldn't fit in my waders without tearing them... I'll definitely be fishing this winter, though.

I find the same to be true everywhere I go in the winter, a couple of years ago I fished the Watagua after a deep snow. It was one of the most beautiful times spent all the water, it was so still out there. I will have to try it this winter.

Caught this one the other day with Speckleman on a little wild stream here in Jackson Co., NC.. Not a monster, but nice fish. A 16" wild small stream brown caught on a #14 Flashback Hares Ear Nymph thrown as a dropper 15" behind of a Parachute Adams. Caught right at dark.

Did he catch it himself!?

dalerio
10-29-2008, 01:59 AM
no but i am sad to say the one he did hook was bigger!LOL i made him a fly rod from an old pole after the smokies trip we took. he casts yarn around the house all the time. the reel is not attached to the yarn so he can reel all he wants. he has got the motion down pat.

it was cold today and he wanted to go "fishuuuun" but i was afraid he would get a bad impression of fishing so i wanted to just catch a fish take a picture with him and it and let him have some fun. little did i know i couldn't seem catch anything, even with all the fish schooled up in each little pool. so he wanted to try and i let him. with the long rod his cast was more of a roll cast but , i have to say it was good. third cast the line straighten out and he started reeling, no hook set. i helped him get it to the bank and it got off. i wanted to dive in after it. my son just turned 2 last thursday. he has told everybody he can about the "the big'un" "tooout".

i have to say it was one of the best trips fishing i have ever had in my LIFE and it only lasted 10 mins. or so. i can't wait to take him back to the smokies.

That water to the right of his head is gorgeous! What type of river/stream is this similar to, a tailwater or mountain? Also, what city is this close to? I'd make a trip up there myself if it's anywhere around Louisville or Bowling Green.
