Similar Sight on Friday
The wife and I made a trip up to the mountains on Friday afternoon for a couple of hours and I also saw a couple very large browns in a prominent pool on Little River. My wife kept making comments about how big those trout were. However, these were not taking dries. I had one make a run at my tellico nymph, but turn away at the last second.
I chose to start my day off quite high in the mountains, and I guess it was the wrong choice. I saw blue quills and quill gordons coming off everywhere, but never saw a single fish rise. Let a couple get off, missed a dozen or more, and only brought one to hand. It was definitely good to be in the mountains, and I don't think it will be long before things explode up there.
