I was very fortunate to hit the Smokies yesterday afternoon in the rain, water was clear and fast and we owned the stream, no one in sight. That is not a troll under the bridge but my friend. Earlier he had just hit a 9 inch rainbow further downstream, but I was too far away to get a shot. I hate him and will not go fishing with him again!

This wrapped up a weekend of Saturday on the Tuck,Sunday on the Clinch (only a few anglers there), and Monday in the Smokies. Work on Tuesday, not quite as much fun, but consider my self lucky on all counts.
