Well only 4 more days until i leave for my first trip to GSMNP. the wife and i are leaving Saturday morning and headed for Townsend from St. Louis. i'm not sure if i could be anymore excited about it either. we have secured somebody as our guide for Sunday so that we can hopefully get a leg up on some park fishing. our first stop on Sunday however will be at LRO to stock up on some flies. i sure hope that they have plenty tied up because i might buy ALL of them. i do at least have a pretty good idea of what to get from reading this board. i've been reading this for about 2 months and i can't stay off of it. this is some of the best information that i have ever found about any fishery that i've been to. i am blown away with the kind and generous information that you all put on here. i sure hope to run into some of you while we are in town and i will definately give a trip report when i get back.
