Yesterday I took a trip up to the Smokies to enjoy the scenery and do just a little fishing. I ended up only fishing for maybe 20 minutes ripping a big streamer through a couple of holes but the scenery was excellent. Seeing Little River back to normal was a great way to begin the holidays. I hope you will all enjoy these pictures of one of my favorite places in the world!

Awesome pics you've taken there PA. Last time I was up on the Little River it was this past August. Looks good from what I can tell, lots of rain equals nice flows. I bet the trout are more than willing to attack any fly you throw at 'em. For me Elkmont was and is the place to fish. A lot of fish are concentrated in that area....smart ones too!!

No fish yesterday although I didn't put much effort into it. I didn't even put on the waders and was just fishing from the bank... It wasn't a great day for fishing because the water temp had been dropping steadily for around 24 hours and the fish don't seem to like changes like that... Still, it was a GREAT day fishing...:cool:

PA,

Thanks for the pictures and Merry Christmas.

I started fly fishing about a year and a half back and have never seen the LR like this.

Beautiful:smile:

Those of us stranded in the troutless foothills appreciate the opportunity to live vicariously:biggrin:

Hope you had a great holiday.

Plateau,

Always great pictures. Are you going to work in the shop this summer or are you out of school and starting the next phase of your life?:rolleyes:

I'm with Plunker. Kills me to see pics like that. I live in between everything I love. Deer hunting, Duck hunting, saltwater fishing, and trout fishing. It gets expensive having to travel to chase your dreams.

Nice PA,
Glad you got to get out for awhile. I was at the in-laws yestreday morning & got home at lunch time. Had really wanted to go out toward the mts. and hit a stream or two but time wa short. I went Turkey hunting all afternoon instead, flushed 2 gangs and really enjoyed myself. Kind of like you I didn't bring anything back to the house but had a great time just being out with my bird dog half the day. I got a new HD camcorder for Christmas and I took some video of the Turkeys, my dog, the creek down on the farm, just enjoyed the things the good Lord has given us.--Bran

Plateau,
Nice photos, the only way they could have been any better is if I were in some of them fishing:biggrin:
