    I am curious about the cycle you feel could be coming. If you don't mind please elaborate

    Jim,
    I was alluding to the cyclical pattern that the Holston seems to follow the past few decades. From my layman experience and word-of-mouth knowledge; the Holston tends to fish fabulous for 2-3 years and then it is down for 3-4 years based on climate and environmental trends.

    It does, it will rise and just when it is on the edge of where it would be off the charts good, it comes crashing down. This year seems to be at the bottom of the curve from what I have heard.

    It is strange, and water temps seem to be about the same each year, so the cause may be unknown.

    It's those guys on Wall Street controlling the river!

    I think all rivers do that. Look at the Caney. Down now but about 3 years ago you could walk across the river on the backs of big browns! Now the Clinch is picking up again some. Who knows what causes the peaks and valleys. Pressure from fishermen? Weather, generation, etc. All I really know is that I am on call and board that I can't go fishing today!
    I am a great admirer of spectator sports, especially on television; it keeps the riffraff off the trout streams.

    Well; personally I've done well this year on the Holston and wish I knew more places to get on the water. So far though I've yet to hook a fish on a dry fly on the Holston this year and have seen only a few caddis.

    What's going on? Haven't been there for two weeks.
