Default First Time on the Clinch

I finally fished the Clinch today for the first time. I met ttas67 and redc4man around noon as the water was falling. They were talking to another guy who turned out to be Green Weenie. We all rigged up and headed out into the water. The fish were feeding and everyone was soon into fish.
I used a parachute Adams for my "indicator" fly and tried various small nymphs (mainly midges) under it. Fish hit just about anything I used and I even caught several on the dry. We fished most of the afternoon at Millers Island and caught some absolute monsters. Here is one of the largest...

Late in the day, I decided to try up near the dam and see if I could find any larger fish. I finally got into some solid 12 inch fish that put on great aerial shows.

It was a nice first day for me on new water and nice to fish with some board members again. Thanks for showing us the river Trevor!
