I have just got into fly fishing big time! I went and got me a new rod and reel setup 8wt. and a vise with all of the tying material. I was looking into striper fishin. I was wondering what time of year you could catch them close to top water cause right now i can only afford a floating line and im not asking for anybodys honey hole but could some one tell me some good places to try around middle tn. I live exactly in between nashville and knoxville. I appreciate any advise cause I have only caught a couple stripers on a spinning reel below the coal plant in kingston. Thanks, Bronzeback
