Why are the Clinch's fish so fragile when the Soho's and Watauga's are so resilient?
I think the lower Clinch fish were born without brains. As late as July this year I've fished through dang good sulphur hatches (usually in the rain) and haven't seen many trout eating the duns/emergers. Whereas nearly every dun goes into a fishes mouth on the tri cities waters. Stupid skinny fish! There's food everywhere!
Oh yeah, I'm only catching fish skeletons above the weir so don't fish there.
Actually the word was out among the trout that your duns were dead on imatations and they were running scared of feeding on the surface. PS. They are born with brains but they hang out with the carp in the lower river. You know how stupid carp can be.
I am a great admirer of spectator sports, especially on television; it keeps the riffraff off the trout streams.
