Hit the Hiwassee for a couple of hours today. There were good numbers of Hendricksons hatching the whole time I was there with lots of rising fish. I didn't have a good match for the dry but a red copper john caught plenty of fish. Things had been going kinda slow until a saw the 24 incher slowly swimming across a large pool. Hooked up on the third cast but it turned out to be foul hooked.... After a suprisingly short battle I brought the nice snake to hand and released it. Hopefully it will be able to grow larger, providing someone else with some entertainment....

Did you catch him on the Copper John?

I don't understand, did you catch a snake?
