Re: Guided Float Trip
I just read your response. I agree 100% that client skill has everything to do with where and when you take someone. If casting and mending skills need a lot of work then the Holston would definitely be a better choice. Even during the sulfur hatch on the SoHo the guide needs to anchor the boat to fish risers. Casting and mending come into play here more than anywhere else. 2500cfs, conflicting currents, and discerning fish can test the skill of any angler. But, and this is a big but, it forces one to up their skill or go home.
This narrows it down to 2 things. If you want to learn flyfishing, go to a DH like the Tuck. If you want to learn trout and their environment, go somewhere technical like the South Holston.
