    I agree. Probably 90% of the browns over 18-20" I've caught in my life have been rising, dingy water after a rain. Fish where big browns are, and give them something worth eating. In nearly 50 years of fly fishing the Smokies, I've only caught one 20" brown on a dry fly, and that was on a #10 dry in the middle of a storm.
    Specks: the other pink meat.

    Really nice brown. Those don't come along very often.

    I wish I could catch a fish like that in the Smokies just to prove to myself that they are in there.

    I'm not too skilled so if I do, it will be purely from dumb luck.

    Chasin Mr. Turner!

    Went out on Saturday on Little River hoping to catch a 22" brown. Sadly.... I failed in my first 2 casts as it took about a dozen casts. To make matters worse and I only got a 21 incher

    The day was overcast and the water was a bit up, which are both good, but I was hoping for rain, which never materialized until leaving the creek. I step into some shoals downstream from a long pool casting and slowly working up to the tail out. I look over at an extended section of the tail out and see this lovely lady in about 2 ft of water no more than 15 ft away. I cast my #8 guinea fly just upstream and I must have cast into her mouth because I didn't detect her move, but the line twitched. I was able to keep her upstream in the large pool and out of the rapids. It wasn't a hard fight, but I could tell she wanted downstream into the rapids, but there I had a net waiting for her. I also forgot to yell "FISH ON".... but then again, this isn't my first "dance with the ladies".
