I did! I used to watch that show and really liked it. Hank was a great dog. Didn't he get a new dog named Des?
In the heat of summer I love fishing in my shorts. Felts with neoprene shocks works great it comfortable and cool. Some times the nettles and stuff can be a problem but wet wading is the way to go in the summer.
It really just depends on the person. Some people wear waders in July fishing in a foot of water, other will wet wade in March.
Personally, I usually don my waders around the end of October/first of November and I am wet wading by the end of March/first of April.
Wet wading gear for me is PGF quick dry long pants, neoprene booties, and wading boots. Long pants to fight of the nettle.
Wild troutin, blue linin, fly flingin, camo wearin, redneckin elitist.
I don not own waders at all. I wet wade starting in March and ending in late October. I just wear convertible hiking shorts, neoprene booties, and my Keen sandals.
My legs are still cut underneath my pants
Those NC nettles may even be meaner than we have on the TN side
I couldn't imagine what my legs would look like if I wore shorts, but am sure I'd need a bigger first aid kit.
Are you people in shorts getting into the backcountry? If so do you just stick to nice trails and the many paths that lead from the trail to the creek, or do you get get up close with the nettles, rhodo, greenbriers, or whatever else may be in your path?
I'm just REALLY glad you didn't wash down into that
I may just call you the "Man from Sleepy Hollow" from time to time, I hope that is OK
I'm only dissappointed the head cam died before that, that would be some nice footage along with my own slide into chest deep water
Gotta love the Smokies
All I've got to say is WORTH EVERY SECOND and I'm pretty sure I owe you a rod/reel
