    Default Hello

    Hi, I'm 15 and have been fly fishing often for a year now. I will be tying at Troutfest in May. I'm looking forward to asking questions and posting answers on the message board. Lee

    I mostly fish the Clinch and sometimes the Townsend-to-Gatlinburg part of the Smokies. I don't know the Smokies as well as the Clinch and am looking forward to learning more. I also have fished the western NC part of the Smokies and am fairly familiar with that area. The fish in my picture was caught at Ravenfork "trophy section" but I have caught a 25 incher in the public part of the Davidson river. Thanks for replying. Can I add you as a friend? Lee

    I live in Knoxville but have several friends in Western NC who invite me over a lot. The one I caught in the Davidson was the real bruiser. I was surprised he took a dry fly. You can see him in my photo album. Thanks, Lee

    Hi Lee,

    Welcome to the board. It was good talking to you today at the shop. I'm looking forward to seeing you tie at Troutfest. Thank you for volunteering to do that. It is a great event with a wonderful mission. You will add a lot of expertise and insight to the fly tying demonstrations.

    Thanks again,

    Right before dark beside the wedding chapel something started hatching, so i put on a cdc blue winged olive. A nice rainbow missed my fly,but that was all the action. Thanks for the info on where to fish.
