    Someone discussing Bunches offends you, however, some of your old posts discuss fishing Bradley Fork, Kanati, Rough Fork, Palmer, Lost Bottoms, Cataloochee, and Straight Fork. I may have missed a few.

    Maybe some of those streams are special to others, you ever think you may have offended some others for posting about those streams? None of the streams are top secret, including Bunches...

    I would also say that none of these are "hard to get to" brook trout streams, but all of them have brook trout and are all pretty good streams.

    You need to get up earlier than I do or hike faster...

    Not true at all and not even a sentence...

    2weight knows where it's at...

    Yep... and if you came to my native Adirondacks which are near and dear to me, I would still tell you where to find some nice browns so you didn't have to wander around 6 million acres trying to figure out where to fish...

I guess if it doesn't bother him that some people do that over here maybe it shouldn't bother us so much.

    Back at it huh? I like to know who appointed you the GOD of spec streams in WNC? Hardly anyone posts detailed info about spec streams on here anymore, yet you're back lecturing people about this time of behavior. IMO you're an arrogant a@@ who should mind his own business. Hopefully, this post will get me banned for life, since I cannot get them to delete my account no matter how hard I try.

    Just a suggestion, try to bring something meaningful to the forum, and no that doesn't mean sharing info on "secret" spec streams.

    Moderator, my offer still stands. Delete my account at any time, had enough of reading posts from the experts and self-proclaimed moderators.

    There are no secrets. I have Don Kirk's book that lists and evaluates virtually all streams in the Park. I have a detailed map of the Park. I have a detailed map of the north and south portions of the Cherokee National Forest. I have no problem finding any trout stream in east Tennessee. Going up on the Tellico corridor this Friday. Don't need a map as I know several places that are productive.

    Default Someone new to the fly and this forum

    Gentleman;

    I have watched from a near, to learn everything possible about a journey I have chosen to take with this passion of being on a stream with a rod and length of line that hopes of finding tightness on the other end.

    This forum has been the only resource for the equipment, books, knowledge and places I have of further discovering where this trail is going to lead me.

    Having attended church, school, served my country, college, and a career as well as a husband and father, I have been down many trails. I don't know how I possibly could have done any of this without great people sharing great ideas that had gone before me on terrific journeys through this thing we call life(fishing). Almost always a map to show me where I was and at the end, there was a great place if you committed, planned, stayed true and disciplined to stay the path and understand the scrapes, scratches and hardships are surely ahead so I could do what most will only talk about.

    As my sons who have looked over my shoulder on many nights as I gather great information from this forum for trips that are being mapped that they have no idea about yet, but soon will discover.....I ask all that are here and those to come please share everything for those that seek it because there's a 10 and 13 year old out there even a 44 yr. old - somewhere wondering what lays ahead out there for them.

    Hopefully a good map or set of directions that gets them to a better place for a moment in time.

    Regardless of where it comes from - it can only BE a good thing to pass a little along.

    Not Here For A Long Time - But A Good Time For Sure!!!!

    That's enough. Please read the forum rules.

    This is a forum about SHARING information, it is a forum about friendship and a place for you all to come to have fun. If you cannot behave like an adult here, if you cannot be respectful of other forum members, if you refuse to read and follow the forum rules, this is not the place for you to be. It's as simple as that.

    There are some people who seem to love to come on here to agitate. Stirring the pot is not appreciated. Please stop. Or please find somewhere else to do it.

    Thank you,

    Paula
