If you are going to try one of the shoes on Abrams BE VERY SURE of the weather and take a friend. Also, if you are going to do the big Shoe, take along a few items that may help you make through the night should it come to that because it very well could. My buddy and I have had to rent a room at the Abrams hotel before (night spent on the bank under a Rhodie) after thinking there was plenty of time to fish around the Big shoe. Gets dark a lot faster than you think and the wading is very tough, not to be done after dark. Bushwhacking out is NOT an option, that will just get you in more trouble than you are by the river. GREAT fishing though.
Hugh, thanks for mentioning that word......I know they are around but I try not to think about 'em!!!
