Thanks so much for the input! Y'all have provided a lot of info, and I appreciate y'all taking the time to do so. The first step for me is to go to LRO and get an 8 wt. rod that's been on my wish list for awhile. I figure on 'up-sizing' my leaders and tippet too. I'm really looking forward to it, hopefully catching a nice fish or two will be a bonus to seeing (or hearing) the river come to life at night. There's a spot on the Clinch that I'm familiar with and that's where I'm going to try this out. It may be a little while before I can make the trip, but I will provide a report when I do. And Grumpy, if I hook a bat, I'm just going to cut the line and run! Thanks again y'all!
