Newly retired Knoxville native. Learned to fish for rock bass on Coker Creek with a Zebco taught by my father-in-law and always wanted to try fly fishing.
Been to Clinch twice with high water and to LR 3 times. This Sat was 1st time with ideal conditions.
Started about 2:30 and Fished near the bridge above Metcalf bottoms. No feeding going on, but tried a yellow never sink fly with no luck. Switched to green weenie but didnt bring any shot and the fly would not sink low enough to reach fish.
About 4:30 the bugs came out and switched back to several different yellow dry flies with no luck.
Switched back to GW and could see the fish looking up at it. If only had some shot think I would have caught some fish. Saw 2 really big fish in a pool.
I learn something every time I go. Thinking about taking the LRO class later this year. Time is limited as we are keeping our 11 month old grand daughter.
Thanks to LRO for all their help in the store, this web site and everyone who posts help and encouragement here.
