I have been visiting this site for some time and finally decided to come on board and be official. I have also been an online customer a couple of times as well. I am a 32 year old Chattanooga native who is really excited about this new found addicition...I mean hobby. I usually make the Hiwassee my river of choice due to its close proximity to home although I want to get out there and really see what Southern Appalachia has to offer. I am looking forward to taking a few friends up to "Trout Fest" in a few weeks and taking it all in. I hope to meet some new folks in Townsend and share a few stories.
