Just wanted to say howdy to everybody on this forum and thanks for everything I've learned in the past year I've been reading your posts.

I started reading this forum last summer after driving past the smokies on our way to Myrtle beach. My reaction to seeing these mountains for the first time was WOW what have I been missing all these years !

I am still new to fly fishing I took a spell with the long rod about 10 years ago and just started again last year. Most of my flyfishing has been for smallmouth until last fall when I caught my first trout on a fly.

The family and I are coming down June 6. staying at Smokemont and I alredy have permission to do lots of fishing !
