If anyone is up fishing Sams Creek in the next few weeks, please keep an eye out for a silver Canon ELPF 310 p&s if you can. It must have somehow slipped out of my pack when I was up there this past Sunday. More then likely it is somewhere up between the third and fifth river crossing. If you do by chance happen to come across it, please let me know and just drop it off at LRO with your name and contact info. I will mail a check out to anyone that recovers it...

Tight Lines,

I may have found your camera...

The outside is badly corroded as well as the battery. The good news is that the SD card is ok. I made a backup for you in case this one goes bad from having been water logged for so long.

Is this your Brookie? (Taken 4/15)

Anyway, if this isn't yours, hopefully the owner will step forward so I can return it. I don't know if you want to bother with the camera itself because it is such bad shape. But I will hold it for now, just in case....

Too bad its dead. I tyhink there was also supposed to be a pic of a big rainbow a buddy of his caught.

Hey can find my gps I lost last week. It's between the tunnel and the Chimney's tops trail.

I'm guessing you found it somewhere around crossing 3

Ooh that's it for sure. I was up there with him and Wizard the day he lost it. At least he will have the pics back:frown:

Yeah, I remember hearing that - I was there that day and was going to fish Sam's a while. I turned around after making it up to the lot and seeing all the stupid cars up there. When I got home, TNFF emailed me that he had been there and it was some sort of photography club and that the 3 of you about had Sam's to yourselves! :frown:

It was in a plunge pool between crossing 3 and 4. If the water hadn't been so low, there's no way I would have seen it, and even less likely that I would have been able to get it.

I bet it has been underwater for the past 4 months....

Yeah I think my gps might be in the water as well. Can you hurry up and find it for me? If you wait 4 months, it will most likely not even matter.
I went back up the next Wed after I lost it, but no luck (at least the fishing was good)

I didn't find it, but I left my net somewhere out there so it will have company. I'll get a report up tomorrow night sometime.

That's definitely it!! Crazy that you found it... :eek: I will try to get up to the mountains next week. You can leave it with Byron at LRO and I can pick it up when I stop in for some more flies...

Thanks guys,

Let me know when you are headed this way. I might not make it out to Townsend before this weekend, and I'm not totally sure I'll be out that way this weekend anyway. But I live in Knoxville, work in Maryville, and I can meet you somewhere on your way in or out of town. Just shoot me an email. Nathan _ Duncan 42 at yahoo dot com.

Ok... I know I have been MIA for a while but I still wanted to get back on here and thank NDuncan for deciding to go fish Sam's Creek that day.. !!! I definitely owe you one as you saved some good fishing pics that I had not yet downloaded... and I had a friend who was anxious to have me email him shots of the trip. Well, wait till he hears the story and hopefully it will get me off the hook for taking sooooo long to send him pics of his fish... :biggrin:

Now on to the show.
Several nice feisty rainbows were caught by yours truly...

How about those BIG fish you might ask...?? Of course we caught some.
Definitely a nice bow...

I was fishing with Nathan yesterday, and mentioned how you dissappeared:eek:

Now if you caught fish like that in the Park, I'd be REALLY impressed:biggrin:

Hope you have a new camera to send some posts our way. Haven't seen a Caney post in a while (hint, hint):smile:

DP - How about you leave the 'barbie bug' at home and come try your hand at bringing these fish to the net. Then I'd be REALLY impressed... :biggrin:

Tight Lines,

Haven't fished a "Barbie bug" in over 6 months now. I have been struck with yellow hammmer fever most of the year. I'd love a chance to catch bigger fish also, and will be hitting the tailwaters soon enough:smile:

And those fish are OK, but I want to learn how to catch the "other" fish you had on your camera;)
