Well, warm weather finally forced me to stay away from the duck blind and try wetting a line. Time factor kept me from driving to the Nantahala. Water looked great, saw some midges coming off, but never saw or caught anything. Few people. My wife came along . She didn't want to fish this time, just participate in the midday lunch affair. Left the river early and stopped at the museum in Tellico plains. Some neat photos and relics there. It felt good to cast and search for fish, but it's not where my heart really is right now. Sorry but I'm hoping for some blue cold weather, at least north of here. Happy New Year to eveyone!
