Spring Break Trip WNC part 1
 
My son had a couple days off from school last week and called me and wanted to go camping and fishing. He also ask could he bring along a couple of his friends from school. I said of course and we arranged to meet at one of our favorite campgrounds to fish a well know Fly Fishing Only C & R stream. The weather, the company, and the fishing were all good.

The indians use to say when you saw the Trout Lilies blooming it was time to go fishing, and it was:smile:http://i68.photobucket.com/albums/i1...IMGP0003_2.jpg
Mostly Browns were caught, most looked as if they were none the worse for wear from the harsh winter we had.http://i68.photobucket.com/albums/i1...0/IMGP0410.jpg

I almost forgot, we had a special guest the last night. He came by and enjoyed a good smoke and cold refreshment by our campfire:biggrin:;)http://i68.photobucket.com/albums/i1...IMGP0027_2.jpg and I needed to add one photo that wouldn't fit in the original post.http://i68.photobucket.com/albums/i1...0/IMGP0019.jpg

Holy crap! That's a massive brown... looked like he coulda taken a finger off!

I caught more browns with large heads than I can remember this trip. I could have put my whole hand in several of their mouths, not that I would have. They have some pretty serious teeth when they get that size;)

Did your guest go to Brevard Jr College in 75 and 76? He looks kinda familar.

flyman 04-17-2010 03:44 PM

Yes he made a quest appearance there. He said they were having trouble scheduling classes to meet his busy schedule though and his stay was brief:biggrin:

Oldman 04-17-2010 05:43 PM

Yeah, I here ya. I was too busy fishing too.

I could not tell but your guest was either my brother in law or chuck norris. Those are some very nice fish. I bet your sons friends really enjoyed that trip. What weight rod was you using on those big boys?

We had a great time:smile: One of the young men had never been camping or fly fishing before. He made his first camping trip and caught his first trout all in the same week. I think he said he caught about 20 by the 3rd or 4th day. The other one had made a couple trips with us in years past. I have taken a group of them camping and fishing 2 or 3 times a year since my son was in middle school. I miss those days:frown:, now that they are in college the opportunities are fewer and fewer. All the fish in the 2 post I made were caught on a 5wt, some on very small flies, 20's or less.:cool: I love sight fishing to large fish with small flies:biggrin:
