    Default Gatlinburg trip

    First got to say what a beautiful shop LRO was, got to spend only a short time there got some flys and had to meet the female gang back towards elkmont for a roadside lunch and throw a few flys, I got to meet Byron.
    The weather was not as good as I would have liked, while in elkmont got 1 brown to my hand and broke another off trying to get it out of some fast moving water, fished 5 hours another day in town and had no luck. I tried everything short of explosives. I got sick of telling myself NICE DRIFT.
    But there is always June.

    Thanks everyone for all the info on my gear post.

    Ok I got another gear question, I got home a went to a stock pond here in Tallahassee today it is stocked with Triploid Kamloops and regular Kamloops, its really open with no real stuff in the way, but my problem was I could not seem to make a long cast to save my life, I was using a 4x leader 7' long 24 inch tippit with a weighted long shank wooly booger
    (what the locals are using), My outfit is a TFO combo so not sure on the fly line. Is there a better fly line to use when longer casting is a needed?
    I know my lack of casting is a issue, but I have used other peoples outfits with no problems in the grass flats, so not really sure. the wind was not really a issue.
    No clue so maybe you guys can steer me in the right direction

    Try using 2 or 3 x leader and tippett for a weighted bugger
