My brothers inspiration so far has led to him doing a bit more research on sycamore. Unfortunately he hasn't found anything I didn't already. The Appalachian TU page is as good as I've found so far, but I think we already discussed that in another thread.
I am thinking about trying the brook trout challenge but it will have to wait until after we do our bushwackin trip to find the naked lady in the smokies... If she's still there
Im just guessing I didn't go up far enough into the small water. That's my conclusion. Ive read articles about SC and the restoration. I was going solo and ran out of daylight. But the Brooke trout challenge would be something I like to do, but thatll be what its called, a "challenge". Ive yet to get a wild/native brookie. That being said im new to small stream fishing.
Never even fished in GSMNP....
