I did knot up a leader at one point and had to switch out and lost a fly or two, but being relatively new to fly fishing in the Smokies, I tend to stop and gaze in wonderment at the scenery. Even after a physical outing like Road Prong, I feel so relaxed for several weeks. I envy those of you that live in the area and are able to fish there often.
That and I scrutinize every step before taking it due to my fear of SNAKES.
