In it he writes: "In the school of the outdoors there is no graduation day."
    That certainly applies to fly fishing in the Smokies, and simply knowing there's always a new challenge, always something to learn, just adds to the appeal.

    Great quote Jim. I have been an avid outdoorsman for over 20 years and truly understand the Idea of never learning everything about the outdoors. The challenge and passion is what fuels my fire to learn more. Just received your book Saturday and enjoyed what little I have had a chance to read. I have read more of your posts; the forum is fortunate to have an active contributor such as yourself. Thanks for sharing.

    Flyman can't be trusted.

    He told me that there were no fish on his side of the park. I went over there and caught fish? Lots of smoke and mirrors from that guy.

    And he keeps a pet doe locked in his guest bedroom. He has obviously spent too much time in the woods
