    Default Finally got away from the flytying vice

    My friend Ernie Roberts told me he was going to the South Holston River today even if the wind was blowing and I just had to get out of the house to break the flytying doldrums, myself. I thought that a good picture of a beautiful brown might lift everone's spirits and get them ready for the Quill Gordon hatch that is about to start. This nice fish took a size #24 Blackbird Deerhair Emerger. We took several nice rainbows as well. Enjoy.

    Sorry that I'm having such a hard time editing this post. I'll just direct you to the report on my website until I figure out how to use all the facilities on this board. It's a pretty fish.

    Hugh,

    I don't see the photo and I'm dying to. You may need to talk to Paula. I haven't figured out this new board yet...matter of fact, I didn't figure out the old one either. "un-smiley face".

    Hugh,

    Byron just got home and told me about your problem. Call me at the shop tomorrow, and I will walk you through the process. Sorry you are having difficulties.

    Hugh,

    Sounds like you had a good day out on the water, of course there is never really a bad day. Hope the wind wasn't too bad for you. I saw the picture of that brown on your site and wow! That's a very nice fish. I can't imagine hooking into a wild brown that big, but i do know that if i did you wouldn't be able to smack the smile off my face, i'd be grinning from ear to ear.

    We had a good day on the SoHo yeterday too. The wind was brutal at times though.
