We stayed in 3 different places on Andros. We rent a room, generally with a meal package and book a guide independently, usually for half days. It's hot in summer and the fish leave the flats after...

Bonefish and Brook Trout

How many times in your life have you caught a bonefish and southern appalachian brook trout in the same week? In my 50 years, that would be once. Last week.

When the local weather gets hot and...

I had a house for many years in this area, but I hesitated to respond because no great suggestions for you came to mind. In August, things are getting tough for fly fishing mountain streams....

I'll try and give a thoughtful answer. The easy reply would be to go a size or two smaller with the dropper. Size 16 or 18 nymph for a 14 dry.

However, I'll make the argument, at least for the...

Last spring fishing report?

I've been watching with dread as water levels have fallen and Byron's "fishing speedometer" has gone from "excellent" towards "slow". I fish the NC side of the park, and the water levels have...

We were the pair. I could tell you two were serious fishermen from your dress and gear. The ten inch rainbows you caught were excellent for that stretch of water.

I fished 2 miles above you Saturday morning and may have seen you pitching camp as we walked out. On our way out, we saw the other anglers in the water just above your camp. I fished upstream again...

Proud of my daughter!

I became a single dad in 2000 with a ten year old daughter and 7 year old son under my roof. I'd take them with me fly fishing on weekends because I couldn't leave them at home. At first, they didn't...

My post here several years ago showed a hellbender eating a trout that I had just caught and released. The literature suggests that hellbenders don't often feed on trout, but I witnessed otherwise.

July 17 Fearnofishbob reported on it right here, and he warned about fishing Cherokee, but no one followed up since, probably because it's slow fishing season with hot weather.
