    Default Smokies 11/12/12

    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.

    Crazy how the leaves have changed so much in just a few weeks.

    That guy under the bridge must be a manly man, catching good fish and drinking expensive bourbon!

    You guys do realize there are no fish under that bridge right?

    That is actually a guy who just lied to his wife and said he was at work!

    I WAS at work!!! I was "working" that section of the stream.

    David, yeah, I know there's no fish there. Must be where all the poison from Lynn Camp ended up a couple of years ago and just 'holed-up" there. It is a good place to practice casting though.
