Park Rules: Reminder
 
This is just a reminder to everyone to please make sure you know the Park rules when fishing in the Smokies. I was out tossing streamers yesterday (slow day) when I came across a huge articulated fly in a tree with TWO hooks in it. :eek: That does NOT qualify as a dropper fly. Park regulations clearly state that a dropper is permitted but the two flies must be a minimum of 12 inches apart. Further is generally better if you are trying to avoid snagging fish. :smile:

So, if you have an articulated fly that you want to fish, do you clip off the front or the back hook? :eek:

Most articulated patterns have the rear hook clipped. Fish typically attack the head.

I think this is why we no longer see mountain fishing reports from Breck:rolleyes:

If it's not articulated and at least 6 inches long he won't throw it;)
