Hi, my name is Earl B. live in North Alabama and have been flyfishing for about 2 years now and started fly tying last year. Most of my trout fishing has been on the Sipsey Fork of the Black Warrior River just below Smith Lake Dam, it is the only year round trout stocked water in Alabama. I started fishing Tn earlier this year, mostly the Elk and Duck Rivers and plan on attending Troutfest later this month. I am lucky enough to get to go on a half day guided flyfishing trip in Asheville, NC during my wife's company convention. Looking forward to fishing some new water.
