I just got back ,fished three days 14,15,16.. I don't know where to start.. Thank you to the guide that gave us the advise on fri.afternoon in the store ,we went to lynn camp prong on sat. and used your tips. caught a bunch of fish and some pretty good ones. Those green weenies are awesome!!! Thank you to the tall dark haired fellow in the store who told us to go to cades cove on sun. morn. Wefished the big shoe. thats not the best place for a rookie to go,but we had a great time . caught most of our fish on a bead head pheasant tail??? Has anyone been back there in the last,lets say, 100 years.don't seem like it. It was BEAUTIFUL!!!!! I met two guys on sat who said they were going to panther creek. One made a comment on the quality of life up there.You just don't know.Anyone who has been there knows about the beauty of the mountians,and if your afisherman thegreat fishing. but you all are what makes that place great.From the guy who moved from Ohio Italked to outside the store,to the two guys Italked to on the moutianside. People don't help people like that everywhere.If you want to see what I mean just go to the orvis store near P.F. Ilost my fly box and was close to sugarlands,Iwent to that store and left without buying anything.Drove all the way to Townsend to get my flys(the same ones I bought that morning :'() Thats the differance you all make.Thank you to everyone for making my trip great!!!! Be back as soon as I can.
