Good time on Abrams
Actually had some time to get out and decided to brave the Cades Cove loop summer traffic and hit Abrams for a few hours today. I wish I had the day for the the Big 'Shoe, (and not a solo venture for sure) but I just did the normal hike in and jump in before the ridge. The water was low but action was as hot as the weather. I felt almost like I was cheating - the fish were stacked up in the obvious deeper runs and shaded slicks - several fish out of the same runs. Though the majority of fish were 6 - 9, (still put a good bend in the rod for small fins) there were a couple bigger and plenty hard strikes that got away.
The colors of abrams bows are something else...
