    yeah, you must be working on a computer that is a few years old. You probably won't be able to watch it in HD. There is a button on teh screen on the video if you put your cusor over it, and it says HD is on. Click it and it will turn HD off, and you should be able to view without and jumpiness, but you won't get the HD. It's still pretty good in SD.

    There are no secret spots in the Smokies...

    If I had to guess it was on the NC side and looked a bit like Deep Creek or Hazel. The footlog would be a giveaway for those folks that have been to the stream you were on, so if you truly wanted to disguise where you were, you probably should have left that shot out. The water level was fairly nice, so if it was Deep Creek, you must have shot/fished it just after the recent rains.

    I think RW was asking for which stream(s) you fished, not the exact location you caught each fish...but thats just my observation...

    And just to reiterate...its a great video!

    That is a fantastic video! I was talking to a buddy today about making a trip like that. I sent him the link and now he is on board. Great job.
    The greatest treasure we can leave our children, is the knowledge and love of the great outdoors.....

    I never said there was a secret stream in the smokies. I wasn't trying to disguise it either. I am sure anybody who's been there could recognize it. It's not my style to blab about streams on the net unless it's stocked, and even then I don't really like to say (rarely do). If you know where it is... great, if you don't... there's no good that could come from highlighting it for the whole world from my perspective. Face to Face I'd tell most anybody, but I just don't like the idea of posting it on the net. It's just my own personal belief and I know that not everyone will agree, but isn't anything in life that way. Anyway sorry I didn't want to name it, and I know it's not a secret, but I just can't do it. Hope I didn't offend anybody, and while some won't understand, I am sure many do.

    Take care and thanks to everyone for the kind words on the video. I enjoyed making it and fishing with good friends.

    Yeah, I agree. It makes me ready to go back. Use it as a recruiting tool for your next trip . It's just hard to get most to commit to a trip over several days with many miles of walking.

    You didn't offend anyone, and please don't take my comments the wrong way. I think sometimes people outside of the area are interested in the general names only because then they could say "that sounds/looks awesome, someday when I get down that way, I'd like to give that a try".

    If you'd rather not do that then perhaps you shouldn't taunt them with videos in HD...

    Or at least tell them to shoot you an email...

    People outside the area owe it to themselves to fish the gems in the smokies. But rather than me tell them...They should stop by the great shop that sponsors this forum. I'm know they could tell folks way more than I ever could.
    Plus Paula is one of the nicest ladies you could ever meet.
