Thanks for the Welcome Joe. I just took your poll about Greenbrier, fished there a few months ago for the first time and understand the "so many prongs and so little tine".
You are very fortunate to live so close to such a great part of our country. Look forward to reading your posts.
By the way the Brookies didn't get me hooked, it was the Rainbows in the Black Hills of South Dakota. Caught twelve to fourteen inch fish in a stream no wider than a creek here in Ohio about 10 years ago. The first time I fished in the GSMNP I caught one Rainbow that was lucky to reach six inches. I knew then I had a lot more to learn to fish these streams.
