    Talking Friday Fun with Freddie

    After only getting to fish one Wednesday in the last 2 weeks in the park, it was time to fling some flies.

    While hiking trips the last few weeks have been fun with Mac and Colby down Boulevard trail to LeConte and Down Alum Cave, as well a SMHC trip to Tomahawk Falls, and hiking with the kids out to Andrews Bald, it's still not the same as fishing.

    Since I lost a bet with Freddie, I was to drive and buy breakfast. He tried to not let me pay, but a bet is a bet and I lost

    Got to the stream and was surprised at how much flow there was. Must have been a pretty good storm the stain the water so much. Fish weren't all that bothered.



    I love this stretch of river





    He may not be in camouflage but with posture like this the fish don't know



    If the fishing isn't good this place is worth it just for the scenery



    But we weren't here for the scenery





    Freddie works a nice pool



    I still have a lot to learn. Here I give Freddie a shot before I scare the whole pool for retrieval



    Will continue

    Nothing huge but some decent fish






    He's ALWAYS just out of sight to the fish. Can you tell he fishes the Smokies a lot



    Artsy Fartsy



    Something you learn while kayaking - Waterfall never look bad from the top



    Hard NOT to enjoy this place





    Up front, after fishing other spots, so he can get perfect drift in the top right pool

    SWEET Pool





    Vol Fan



    Not the awesome displays we've had the last 2 years but nice none the less





    Good Day on the water



    Although I needed just a taste more



    Unmarked grave stone of an Indian that died during the construction of Walker Camp Road. Don't know why they dragged him up there




    Headed home feeling satisfied

    Great post James you guys must have started pretty low and went up a ways on that stream. Never seen the indian grave you will have to show me sometime. I certainly know the feeling of sneaking up to an awesome looking hole or run then maybe I should take a break and catch my breath but instead I rush a cast or something and get caught up in the rhodo. That is the worst feeling. Thanks for all your posts this summer I have really enjoyed them.

    Very nice report. I have really been itching to get back up that way soon. That is one of my favorite streams, but I still haven't fished past the 4th bridge!
