First Smoky Mountain Trout
Took my good bud Mark Law up to the mountains (well I actually met him in Gatlinburg, Tn) and spent the morning fishing for trout in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park this last weekend. We got on the river a little late and then got rained out in the afternoon, but it was worth it as Mark caught his first Smoky Mountain trout. It was in a nice little pool and aggressively hit his yellow neversink (that I tied of course ). It was a nice little 10" bow that bent his 5wt over really good. He was super excited and so was I. Mark did pretty well and caught on pretty quickly. If he corrects a few mistakes that he was making, he should be able to catch fish whenever he wants.
