As long as I can remember, I have loved the Great Smoky Mountains. I have hiked some of the trails, and now I have an opportunity to fish some of the streams. I am signed up to take the beggining fly-fishing I in March with LLO. I am looking forward to it!

Welcome to the board and to another addiction that gives you an excuse to get out in the mountains! You will enjoy the fly fishing school from LRO...they have some of the very best fisherman in the area teaching it!!!

welcome! and congratulations. *you've picked a hobby that may well change the course of your life. you may soon find that hiking is only a means to reach a fishing spot. and you'll never be able to look at a stretch of water without contemplating if you could cast a line over it. you'll never look at an insect, even an ant and not think about a trout eating it. also, you'll probably never take another trip or plan another vacation where you don't try to incorporate the use of a fly rod. enjoy!
