I had a great couple of days with some great friends fishing the S. Holston. Most of the fish came on midges. Tung head black fly nymphs, grey WD40s and Foam back RS-2's were the primary flies. We did get some dry action on 3/25 with a great BWO hatch.

Nice fish John, love the colors on that bow...how was the rock snot (didymo)? I haven't made it to the SoHo in a year or so, maybe for the sulphurs....what are you shooting for the underwater pic?

I am using a waterproof Olympus Stylus 770 SW. The rock snot was not too bad at this point. Will be disinfecting my wading boots with bleach.

Beautiful fish. I love the colors on that bow.

I've been considering buying one of those waterproof Olympus cameras.

It works well for what I use it for, but for other than close ups, it is not the greatest. Best part is waterproof and shockproof so I can carry it in my vest fresh water fishing, and on my belt when wading the saltwater flats. The colors on some of the rainbows looked just like the colors on some of the cutthroat I have caught out west.
