Nice fish, I'm assuming that wasn't a Park fish based on the hatchery markers on his fins.

Please don't take that as a critique because it's not at all, I fish tailwaters and all we have are...

Welcome to the Clinch in the fall. It's cruel to say the least. One aspect no one has mentioned is that at this time of year the fish are coming off of being beaten on daily since April, that plays a...

The striper paranoia was laughable to a degree this year. Sure there were stripers but were there anymore than normal? Doubt it from what I saw.

I fished my last day on the Clinch until 2015 a...

I like it, I tie one similar but use a smaller bead and no dubbing behind the bead. IMO midges are very streamlined and a big ball of dubbing could look unnatural to fish. I also coat my bodies with...

Yes, that's exactly what happened. I drove around Lake City yesterday and there are no major construction projects going on, nor does there appear to be any on the horizon that I could find.

The mud water won't push them out and usually makes the larger predatory fish much more active. The stripers usually retreat back down stream about this time of year for some reason, not to mention a...

For as long as I've been fishing the Clinch which is pushing 30 years now, it always turns that color after heavy rains in either Cane Creek or Coal Creek. This is nothing new and most seasoned...

Floated yesterday and saw zero stripers with the water off, maybe they're all dead, but I'd say they're beginning their retreat back downstream.

I tried one a couple of years ago and it was not a good line. It did not load the faster rods I fish well, and didn't last more than a month before it was cracking and sinking. Maybe it's just me, I...

I should add that I've been fishing the Rio Smallmouth line for many years and get one season out of them if I'm lucky. Next year I'm switching to Sa's bass line.

I've often wondered what impact...

I've had good luck with the SA lines and usually get about 3 years out of one. Considering I fish about 100 days a year I feel that is plenty to get 300 days on a line.

Tiemco and Umpqua are the same just a different package.

I'm a Tiemco guy, but will use whatever I can find. First choice is TMC, but all the others have models that work just as well IMO
