    Default New from Grensboro, NC

    I was doing some research on fishing in the Great Smokey Mtns and I ran across this website. I am probably going to be fishing the NC side in October but I would definatley like to explore the region when I am able.

    I am not completely new to fly fishing but I have not wet a nymph is 12 years. Most of my experience is fishing the streams and rivers of Virginia north of Roanoke and south of Abingdon. I have not really caught that many trout but I sure had fun trying. My recent experiences fishing have been in the surf on the Outer Banks of NC. I decided to dust off the fly gear so I could broaden my fishing experiences. I am especially keen to try some water in TN and maybe try a float trip.

    When I am not trying to fish I am a paramedic field supervisor in Guilford County, NC. I am married and I have a 1 year old son that I am dying to take one day.

    Anyway, this looks like a nice site and hope to chat with some folks about the Smokies.

    Give a man a fish and he eats for a day...... Teach a man to fish and you better get him a divorce lawyer.

    Talking Welcome!

    Welcome to the board Buffalo96! Lots of great people and great info here. Its a great place to learn new stuff and to share what you know with others. I took up fly fishing 6yrs ago here in Tn and love it! I also grew up in Madison, NC, just north of Gboro about 20 mi. Ive' also spent 7 years living in Wilmington, lots of great fishing at the beaches and bays down there before I moved to Tn. Good fishing to ya!
