Default Bald River overnight with family

bhrt & myself took our famlilies & dogs on a short overnight trip to the Bald this past weekend. We packed up everything (pretty sure there was a kitchen sink in my pack) and hit the trail around noon saturday after a delicious lunch at Tellico grains. We couldn't have asked for any better weather.

About to hit the trail


This was an experimental trip, as neither of the babies (now toddlers) had been on a backpacking trip before. We weren't sure what to expect or what we might need, so we made camp fairly close to the trailhead.



I think everyone got a little time on the water. Even little Crosby got a taste of the 6 1/2' glass 3wt that will be his one day. As usual, most of the fish were 7-9" rainbows, and were caught on a mix of dries, green weenies, & tellico nymphs. bhrt and I got to spend a good bit of time on the river Sunday morning. I couldn't get a bite on the dry fly, but they were really hammering a tellico nymph. Some of the fish were jumping 3 feet out of the water multiple times.











It was a great time, and I think next time we'll hike a little further and make it a 2 night trip. And of course make the dogs carry more beverages. Here are some more random pictures.
