I got into Townsend a little later than I had planned on and didn't get to fish Friday and Saturday I woke up a little quezzy :redface: and didn't fish long before heading to Troutfest then back home. I did manage to catch my first GSM Little River fish..
a creek warrior :confused: as Jim Casada was nice enough to point out for my at Troutfest.
I look forward to a better trip next time and will be sure to pack some Pepto:rolleyes:

Don't forget the essentials Earl! ;)

It sure is a pretty place isn't it and I beleive that is what they call a war paint shiner, maybe the hills people call it the creek warrior.

It was good to see you yesterday, Earl, if only for a short while. Kim and I left for home just after lunch but enjoyed our time there at Troutfest. The Cherokee fishing and trip was a blast and we can't wait to get back up there!

Those war paint shiners are real aggressive for their size.

If those war paints grew bigger, it's all I'd fish for.

gmreeves--Yep, same fish, and the name you use is the one you will find in books. The vivid red stripe obviously explains both names.

They sure are pretty fish. I like their tails also.
