    Default Hugh has pretty fingers!

    If you haven't taken a look at Hugh Hartsell's fly tying videos you are missing out; besides an awesome manicure his videos are well made and informative.... I particularly like his sulphur nymph; will be tying some up tonight.

    As Hugh swears by his "Tan Wulff" I venture they belong in my fly box as well; been a while since I tied any hairwing wulffs BUT I'm gonna hedge my bet against the zillion parachutes in my boxes.

    OH, and Hugh I really liked your video on fruit trees, thanks for sharing!

    Corbo,
    Thanks for following along on the website. I hope some of the information helps as you learn all the streams in East Tennessee.
    About that manicure?? You have no idea how much one of those things cost!
    I spent some time on the Holston River this morning,but I have not downloaded the pics yet. I'm having a tough time keeping new reports on the website because high water in the Park has caused 4 trips to be rescheduled. The video about the fruit trees was actually meant for a Ginseng Board that I am a member of and some of us from different parts of the country were showing how Spring is progressing here. Between the ginseng on my website and the thread about Morels on the LRO board you will become a reinvented Northener,if you keep being exposed to all this mountain lore.
    Keep reading the reports and I hope to have some good trips to Abrams Creek soon.

    Hugh's patterns have given me the basis of several patterns I use on the Clinch. I enjoy looking through his patterns and I especially enjoy reading his posts. I hope to hit him up for a fishing trip in the future.

    He is a true ambassador in our sport!

    Keep wondering when Shawn is gonna strap on a scuba tank for his videos.... hmmmm?

    Would love to see what a striper look like eating a rainbow.

    Richard,
    I am certified to dive open-water. However; I think I could snorkel most of the Clinch. I do have a new underwater boom with a LED Light for getting better shots of deep holes and stripers.

    Also; I do have some underwater videos of striper on the Clinch. However; the quality is not that good. I may try and enhance it a bit to see if it comes out better. I videoed them from my boat by holding the camera out in the water with my hand and chasing them about with my boat. Believe it or not; they did not run like I expected.

    So Shawn

    Why do you not throw a fly at the Stripers? Are you afraid you might like it, do you need the right flies, or perhaps no interest?
