Matching the Hatch... This Deep Creek angler just might be thinking, “I’m going with a red popper.”
(Sorry for pic being out of focus.)

More terrestrials.
(This one is also out of focus, so I added some artsy blur.)

Indian Creek Falls – Everywhere the rhododendrons were the best I ever recall.

I got to spend four nights in Smokemont last week. Flows were decent in the area due to a pretty good rain a day or so before. Fished Bradley Fork one day, but only had a few slaps up past the Smokemont Loop Trail junction. Spent the rest of the time hiking, cataloging and relaxing. I managed to make it to Raven Fork at the Enloe Creek backcountry campsite. That is one awesome stream.
