    Default Hello from Chicago-land

    Hi everyone! Just wanted to post a quick hello on the forum here. I read Byron's report every day but just stumbled on the forum recently. I live west of Chicago, but my wife grew up in Morristown, and still live there. This makes it an easy sell for me to get down to the Smokies to fish three or four times a year. I look forward to chatting with some of you.

    Default Welcome!

    Welcome to the site Forrest. I used to live up your way in Byron, IL and worked in Rockford every day. Then we moved to the Smoky Mountains in Greeneville, TN and just loved it there for 5.5 years. You can learn a lot about fishing in the Smokies by listening to these guys on this site and have a little clean fun while you learn. Harry Crabtree

    Pull up a seat Forrest, always room for another one. This forum is a great place to learn about the park and beyond. Some good guys and great angles and tiers on here. I still say Byron's report day in and day out is as good as they come, plus he and his lovely wife are pretty good ambassadors for Townsend TN.

    I, as usual, agree with Flyman. Welcome Forrest. With winter upon us, this forum is about all the fishing I get to do.
