Let's not forget that the hosts of this forum are Byron and his beautiful bride Paula. This mess has to be impacting the business of Little River Outfitters in a negative way. Let's be respectful and do what we can (call / write our representatives). In a more real way, as my fishing season winds down, I'm looking at the stuff I lost, broke or used up over the summer. I usually place my order in the spring. I think I may move it up this year.
As for coming to the Smoky's for the fall, not this year, too much question of if the park will be open, if one can get in, etc. That doesn't mean I've forgotten LRO though.
