    Default Clinch-Friday Night 5/16/14

    The Clinch Millers Island ramp project continues on, every day I see progress as I go to jump in the river. I went after work last night about 6pm, fished til 8:30pm, with temps better dress accordingly. My rule of thumb is whatever the temp minus ten degrees to compensate for standing in a river. Sometimes it's a Little warm at first, but as you reach your spots, the sun goes down, and you start standing that extra layer makes the difference between those who flee and those who fish in comfort, I apply this to Smokies fishing and serves me well in the winter, spring, and fall fishing.

    I got a total of five with a mix of browns and brookies, was really trying to nail a Clinch slam, but could not get a rainbow to save my life! The brown was not big, brooks were decent with the second one very nice.

    SMALL BROWN



    FIRST BROOK NICE HOOKUP



    FISH CAM WHAT HE SEES



    WHAT HE THINKS "THAT IS ONE BIG UGLY DUDE"



    SECOND BROOK: Thunderhead tied me some flys to my specs, thanks to him for the brooks.

    Looks like you had yours hands full and slimmed. I can't wait until I can get down south and hit the streams.

    Nice evening of fishing BigSur. Doesn't hurt to begin the weekend that way. You're welcome for the flies. Glad they produced!

    That first pic of the small brown looks like it has a yellow worm in it's mouth
