Picked up the July/August issue of Fly Fish America magazine today (and its almost Sept) and noticed a couple of our local boys have articles published. Both have good info and everyone should try to get yourself a copy.
1st, Steve Bryson (TellicoAngler) wrote a good article on Removing fish hooks. He is a local guide on the Tellico and a Paramedic.
2nd, My old pal Jim Parks has a great article on the Top 10 backcountry streams of the GSMNP. I have fished with Jim and he really knows his stuff. He is probably the best high stick nymph fisherman I know and with 30 years of park fishing experience, he is one of those guys who has caught lots of big fish (I'm talking the 20"+ browns) from the park.
