Hello how are yall doing? Really great for me. I am offshore in Brazil working right now but will be headed back to good ole Mississippi soon and from there were headed up to the great smoky mountains. Boy am I ready to get back up there I love that place. But I want to take my and two daughters with me fishing. I know that it will not be any serious fishing but I mostly just enjoy walking in the woods. They will not be fishing just walking with me and enjoying the outdoors. My question to you locals and those who are familiar more so than I. Is if your were going to take your family with you walking and fishing maybe take in a picnic lunch. Where would you go to what trail? I know in October the park will be completely full of people but that will have to be okay. Maybe you know of one that is not as popular as the rest of them. I guess I surely should stay out of Cades Cove. Our cabin that we have rented this year is in Gatlinburg. Well if any of you would please help me out here I would really appreciate it. I will surely be stopping by LRO to buy me some new flies and from reading your post I already have them picked out.
Me and my wife has also talked about buying us some small house up there in a rural area not to far from the park just for a place to get away to. Do any of you have suggestions as to what area I should look at?
