OK, some pictures but no fish pictures today, three hits, two caught on my 2wt rigged with a size 12 tungsten bead head pheasant tail embarassingly small but fish on I'll take it. The water even though running fast and heavy was gin clear even on a cloudy day. As Byron has been posting on the fishing report you gotta get it down to see some results, as I mentioned the water was gin clear so I probably spooked 90% of them before I got to the water. I hit Elkmont about midday for a fast two hours, saw no one on the trail or the water, like my own private stream, a perfect Monday! :biggrin:

About 4PM jumped on some roadside casting going back down the road with a rod and reel I keep rigged with intermediate sink tip and a bead head #6 black stonefly just to test the hope blooms eternal theory in a gorge pool about twenty ft. deep with a heavy backflow off a cliff wall.
Great practice no luck!

Ended the day in the dark at Metcalf with a flock of turkeys tried to get their picture but by the time I got the camera out, just left their tracks behind streamside!:biggrin:


The last patch of snow on the trail going in!
