I've been learning to cast at the local county park lakes.. I've been coming to the Smokies for quite a few years now. I hope next Oct. to fish for trout there.

Hey Grampajac,

Great to see someone else from the 'ville. I started fly fishing in the spring and have lost my mind. I have gone to Otter Creek and Elkhorn Creek several times. Been to the Smokies twice with the second time going to the beginners class at LRO and it was a great experience.

I'm heading back to the Smokies in November.

Welcome and everyone on the board has been more than willing to help out in any way they can.

Hey Louisville crew and those in the general area of Louisville,

EP Tom Sawyer park and Tom Wallace lake in Jefferson Memorial Forest both stocked about 4000 rainbow trout this week. I went to Tom Wallace and got 6 in about an hour. Each was for 8 to 10 inches.

Not the cunning wild trout that we all prize but fun none the less.

Grampajac, I left a couple in there for you... :smile:
