All,

I am about to bust!! We are leaving for GSMNP Friday AM! I keep up with the fishing in the GSMNP area through this forum and love hearing about the backcountry trips.

Been tying flies for about a month in prep for this week.

One more item....I am looking to purchase some land in the GSMNP area in preparation for my retirement. Anyone have suggestions for a realtor? I am looking in either the Townsend area or the Newport area. Something outside the hussle and bussle of Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg. My thought around Newport is we are far enough outside Gatlinburg/Pigeon Forge but adjacent the I-40 corridor to Knoxville and Ashville.

I am open to whatever advice you all can provide.

thanks
