I knew you would take it well, and I just couldn't help the Chuck Norris reference.... However, you know they say all rumors are built on some truth. Just saying!
When are you going to be around? I tried to make reservations for the family in Elkmont for Father's Day weekend, and the online booking tool said it was booked up through mid-July.
I was even trying for Thurs & Fri so as to avoid some of the crowds.
Getting back to the original topic, I remember fishing over in Cherokee with you one day and you were having very good success with a Tellico nymph. I tied one on, and didn't have much luck. Afterward, we compared flies and yours was significantly different. I need to look up the Blackburn style pattern and see what that looks like.
