View Full Version : My Youngest Son's First Wild Brookie - Pisgah Blueline

We had to postpone our second Smoky's camping trip so I took the day off and took my two boys, Andrew (12) and Mark (11) to a Pisgah blueline. Mark had never caught a wild trout before so that was today's mission.

The water was a little fast from the T-storms last night and so the fishing was a little slow. Then, we came upon a piece of trash that someone had left behind and I told Mark that if you pick up at least one piece of trash, your fishing karma improves. Wouldn't you know it, less than 10 minutes later, Mark hooked his first wild trout and it was a beautiful brookie. It was the biggest of the the day for all of us and he caught it on a hi-viz Adams tied by his brother. We all caught fish and had a great day.

Couldn't have timed that better if you'd tried. That is great!
