    Walker Camp Prong


    Bow in Walker Camp - not used to seeing these guys that high. We did catch a few brookies but didn't get photos.


    Daniel enjoying a nice sunny day on the river.


    Dad - put that darn camera away.

    Looks like a fun trip and some quality father/son time. For the record, I have never snagged a tree with my fly.

    If you were to ask Daniel, he didn't snag the tree either. He said the tree reached out and grabbed his fly so it wasn't really his fault.

    Great report Jeff thanks! I heard the orvis guy Rosenbauer on a podcast say he gets snagged in trees or brush about 7 times an hour on average and he isn't really a newbie. I usually don't get snagged until I tie on a perfect dry dropper combo then sneak up to the best looking hole of the day. Thats when it always happens cause I am excited and can't see the trees for the hole.

    It seems when I snag a tree it's a branch hanging right over the spot where I know a trout is waiting for my fly to float by. I have a choice, pull on the line to break it off and the wiggling of the tree limb scare the fish off, or wade over to it and scare the fish off but in either case, I scare the fish off.

    How I always know there are no fish in the run is when I cast a perfect cast and have a perfect drift. If there were fish in the run, there would be a tree ready to eat the fly long before the fish ever sees it.

    Adam et al., If you don't find yourself occasionally fishing for squirrels while wading in the Smokies, then you ain't fishin' right!

    A guy the other day posted about a small stream in GA: " I just walk to the river, throw a handful of flies into the trees - and leave."

    I say the same thing about dove hunting. Save wear & tear on my shotgun, and my shoulder, cut open the shells, and pour the powder, wad, & shot on the ground. Reload the empty shells and do it again.

    Ain't that easy. You also have to dunk yourself and cause at least one major bruise. Breaking or losing a piece of equipment is optional.
