Friday Fun with Freddie
 
After only getting to fish one Wednesday in the last 2 weeks in the park, it was time to fling some flies.

While hiking trips the last few weeks have been fun with Mac and Colby down Boulevard trail to LeConte and Down Alum Cave, as well a SMHC trip to Tomahawk Falls, and hiking with the kids out to Andrews Bald, it's still not the same as fishing.

Since I lost a bet with Freddie, I was to drive and buy breakfast. He tried to not let me pay, but a bet is a bet and I lost:frown:

Got to the stream and was surprised at how much flow there was. Must have been a pretty good storm the stain the water so much. Fish weren't all that bothered.

He may not be in camouflage but with posture like this the fish don't know

If the fishing isn't good this place is worth it just for the scenery

But we weren't here for the scenery;)

Freddie works a nice pool

I still have a lot to learn:rolleyes:. Here I give Freddie a shot before I scare the whole pool for retrieval

He's ALWAYS just out of sight to the fish. Can you tell he fishes the Smokies a lot

Unmarked grave stone of an Indian that died during the construction of Walker Camp Road. Don't know why they dragged him up there:confused:

Great post James you guys must have started pretty low and went up a ways on that stream. Never seen the indian grave you will have to show me sometime. I certainly know the feeling of sneaking up to an awesome looking hole or run then maybe I should take a break and catch my breath but instead I rush a cast or something and get caught up in the rhodo. That is the worst feeling. Thanks for all your posts this summer I have really enjoyed them.

Very nice report. I have really been itching to get back up that way soon. That is one of my favorite streams, but I still haven't fished past the 4th bridge! :o
