Hello all,

I just found out yesterday that my transfer to East TN went through, and I will be working and living in the Jefferson City area. Have been visiting the smokies for around 40 years. Took me a while to get a forestry job in that area. Looking forward to discovering new waters, and fishing my favorite places in the smokies more than a couple of times a year.If anyone knows of an affordable rental in the Jefferson City area drop me line. I'll be traveling that way in a couple of weeks to find a place to live and hopefully do a little flyfishing.

Congratulations. You are moving to one of the most beautiful places in the world. I've only lived here fifteen years but I've been visiting for probably fifty years. I know a lot of people from Jefferson City area will answer your post. Hugh and Carolyn Hartsell live near there. You need to meet up with them. Their e-mail and website address is posted all over the board. Welcome to East Tennessee.

Hello Byron,

Thanks for the warm welcome. You run a first class establishment, I have been visiting your shop several times a year over the last 7 years or so, and have always received great service and great products. At your previous location, one of your employees turned me onto a location where I caught my largest brook trout in the Smokies. I'll never forget that great piece of advice. Now that I'll be closer to Townsend I'll be able to visit your shop more often and learn even more about the Smokies and the surrounding area.

Thanks again,

Congratulations, I'm really glad for you. I know how long you have been waiting on this. Keep in touch and if you ever need any help with anything give me a call. As for fishing, let me know when you are settled in and we can go and harass some fingerlings.
