Just like to introduce myself. I'm from the shoals area in Alabama. I've been flyfishing for about 4 years, but I only get up to the Smokies 3-4 times a year. I come with the family. So, I'm lucky to get more than 1/2 day of fishing in per trip. To make a long story short, I'm very musch a novist at the sport, but I love to get out on the secluded mountain streams even if my catches are small & few. I injoy the board & try to get out to the store on each trip.
Thanks to all for all the great information. It realy helps those of us who are not fortunate enough to get to fish the smokies on a regular basis.
