Great friend from CO came in for my son's wedding this weekend. We fished today at Nance's Ferry on the Holston. Only two small trout(more than I expected) but we managed 6 smallies. Best one about 16".

BTW. This is Andrew Betts who is John Betts's son. For those of you just starting out in flytying John was the inventor of Z-lon, and microfibetts. Great stories on how he came across the material and how he manufactured this stuff in his basement for years. One of the original synthetic fly tyers.

PS...used a secret squirrel on the smallies....man I forgot how they fight.

The holston is such a good smallmouth fishery. I wish it was regulated as a trophy smallmouth destination rather than wasting so much money stocking all those sickly looking rainbows that get dumped in there.
