An East Tennessee breakfast.
The booths had a wide range of goods, from arts and crafts to inexpensive bamboo, sample driftboats, modern rods from companies like Scott and St. Croix, and of course lots of food. One group of three old men from Karns Community Center west of Knoxville probably sold a grand's worth of homemade ice cream.
, the coolest, most unique radio station in the country (public supported but not NPR, available on the web all the time but barely able to broadcast outside Knoxville, with a huge following in Australia of all places) had live music for much of the day Saturday--excellent bluegrass music. These guys were just warming up.
Fly-tying demonstrations by Mike Bone (pictured - a great guide on the Clinch), Kent Edmonds of Itinerant Angler Podcast fame (haha), Joe Humphries of Pennsylvania, Kevin Howell of Davidson River Outfitters - some very high quality material here. Kent showed me how he ties his Stealth Bomber.
