So since it had been over 24hrs since I was in the smokies, I decided to beat the cold weather and do some fishing this afternoon. All in all it went ok. The fishing was still a little slow for me, despite the 51 degree water. I caught a 7" rainbow pretty quickly on a caddis larva. A short while later I had a large bow slam my dry (grey never sink) and had a pretty good battle with him. After about a minute of fighting him, I got him to the surface, about 3 feet from the bank. He looked to be over 14"...which was exciting. Shortly after, he took a couple of leaps out of the water and gave a great shake and threw the fly...oh well...

I managed an 8" bow and a handful of small ones. The rain started up about 7 pm and when the wind picked up, I decided to head home.

Will upload pics later, if you want to see some 6-8 inch rainbows...:smile:

Guess your're trying to get those 100 days od Smokies fishing in by April:biggrin:

I always thought I had a bad case of Smokies fever, but apparently you have a very strong stain of the virus that is much worse:eek:

Nice Nathan. I usually can't catch anything until March (when it warms up) so I don't really try but this year I might have to wait till May the way it is going. 14 inch bow that is pretty cool. I have never seen gray neversinks.

I have never seen gray neversinks.

Me neither, until I started tying them for December fishing... posted pics in the Fly tying board a couple of months ago...
