As I did last year, I kept a running total on my calendar at work on how many times I fished, where I fished and the numbers for 2008. Here are my final totals:

Waters fished: Soho, Helton Creek, Tuck, Nan, Caney, GSMNP, Clinch, Fishless, and North Fork of New River.

Trip Count: 35

Trips skunked: 8

Fish count: 147 Rainbows
42 Browns
23 Brookies

Personal best fish for the year (and all time): 26 3/4" brown caught on Clinch.

Average catches per trip: 6

Time I took a wet spill: 5
Times I went completely under: 1

Here's to a pretty good year on the water and hopes and wishes for ya'll to have a spectacular year on the water in 2009.
