Btdt

Been there, done that. It is a pretty neat show if you catch it right. I usually get a campsite, hike up and fish for the day, come back to camp for dinner, then go take in the show around dark. ...

Age ...

I spent Friday at the event. My first time at anything like this related to fishing. I needed a days rest after three days fishing earlier in the week :)

Doesn't matter

I'd take a #14 Thunderhead, but would not feel at all disadvantaged by a #12 or #14 bushy brown or gray dry fly by any name.

Nice section of water

I always like Pretty Hollow to Lost Bottom. Not the biggest fish in the park, but they're usually eager to take a fly. I caught 32 on that section one day earlier this year ;)

waist pack for big items, pockets for flies, etc.

I wear a waist pack for raingear, lunch, water filter, etc. I carry my flies, tippet, nippers, floatant, etc. in shirt pockets.

what kind of disaster?

What kind of disaster could occur if I have my rod in the sock only and have a backup rod in case I break it. The lightest tube I have weighs nearly a pound and I don't need to carry any more pounds...

just a sock

I just stick my rod in the sock that usually goes into the tube. I then stick that down one side of my pack. Tubes just weigh too much. An extra rod (in case I break it) weighs less than the tube...

color on the humpies not that important. size depends on what the fish want that day and the nature of the water I'm fishing. I do like pink wings on the thunderheads ... fish don't care and I can...

Water Levels 5/10 - 16

Heading down to the NC side of the mountains for a little R&R (read that as "fishing").

Any updates on water levels at mid-elevations?

Oconoluftee, Noland, Deep, Bradley, etc.

Thanks,

You can count me among the kayak fly-anglers.

I love to wade the streams in the Smokies, but closer to home, I use my Tarpon to ply the waters for Smallies in local rivers and big browns in the...

Watch for the bears at 39.

That said, I concur with staying at the front-country campground. It provides access to all the water and is usually quite and peaceful compared to most other...
