Thanks everyone for the encouragement and congratulations. I really enjoy this forum.
As long as we are airing out the dirty laundry... I left a few flies and nymphs in the trees as well. I've dropped an entire box into the water and watched it float away at Tremont and have missed many more fish than I care to admit to. But you can't argue with the opportunity to spend time in a place like GSMNP.
My wife took this photo at Greenbrier while I fished:
With a backdrop like that who wouldn't want to fish?
