    Talking Grate Day

    Wednesday morning was still pretty cold. You could see snow on all the nearby mountain tops. The water, while I didn't get a temp was much colder than usual

    Ice was forming on the stick in the water, as well as in my guides



    Breck, I tried the gonga for a minute, but flows were WAY too low unless didymo was what I wanted to catch

    Had to go the other side of the spectrum and throw size 20 and smaller.

    While I had my own idea of what flies might work, Scooter at the local fly shop really put us on the right flies

    Brownie on a dry


    And some of these guys





    The dry dropper was paying off. I was losing flies right and left till I switched from 7x to 5X but was still happy as could be



    This guy reminded me of the size fish I typically catch in the Smokies
