Default Back from 6 days in the Backcountry

Spent 6 days in the NC side of the smoky mountains backcountry. After spending the allowed 3 nights at our first site we moved about 4 miles upstream to the next available site.

Had rain two nights but cleared by morning. The weather during all 6 days was excellent. Never seen another fisherman and the fishing was unmatched.

Wanted to post a couple pictures from our trip.

Picture of my brother showing me how he uses his 4 wt. rod.

Spent a lot of time climbing over, under, and around large bolders.

Nonstop pool after pool. Here fishy fishy

Picture of some of the locals from the area. You can see the dry fly. We used Dry Fly the entire week. Never even tied on a nymph, you have to love that.

This one really surprised us. He was caught an hour and 45 min hike upstream in a pretty small pool. We figured we were a little more than two miles upstream from Camp. Really long days fishing and hopping rocks.

One last picture of one of the locals. We really enjoyed catching the Brook Trout.

This was an excellent hiking, camping, and fly fishing trip. Spending it with my brother made it unforgetable.

Should take me about a week at work to completly recover from all the cuts and bruises from hopping rock to rock for miles day after day. Having fun like this is hard work.

Mac--A really enjoyable post. Interesting you don't mention your destination, but the photos pretty well give it away (at least to me). I won't say where directly, but I'm all but 100 percent certain it's Chapter 31 in my book. Not to worry--the place is so difficult to access few will venture there, for it's the most rugged, remote prime fishing area on either side of the Park. Jim Casada

Smile Nice Report...a couple questions

When switching campsites, did you take the trail or the stream to the other campsite? If you took the stream did you have any problems finding the right branch to you next campsite?
