David,

It was good catching up with you, and spending a little time fishing too. I really wish we could have gotten a picture of that brown, as it was by far the best trout I have personally seen caught in the park. I knew as soon as we decided to not bring my camera because you had yours that it would eventually be a mistake...

I ended coming back up there Friday to take the family camping, but didn't get to do much fishing.

Tight lines!

Yep, that's the same style I tie them. Great pattern although I haven't fished them much out here yet. Unfortunately I haven't been on too many rivers large enough to mess with streamers of that size. This summer though....watch out browns!!!

Travis, it was a great weekend to camp. Wish I had more time to stay and I probably would have been out camping as well. Glad you were able to spend some time out with the family even if there wasn't much fishing. The time you're spending now will pay off huge dividends down the road when your kids are spending time outside and want to go fish with you... BTW, it was good seeing you even if we didn't have time to fish for very long!

Such a true statement! I'm seeing this come true in my own life as well. My kids are pretty much grown now. 1 16year old still at home and a 20 year old in college. My wife and I took them camping several times a year since they were born and they soon spent every spring break in the mtns camping alongside the stream. I introduced them to turning over rocks in the stream and catching nymphs, stoneflies and crayfish. I didnt get to spend a lot of time fishing during those camping trips, maybe an hour or so everyday during the afternoons, but just taking those short hikes around the campgrounds or up to the cabins at elkmont were a lot of fun for all. As they got older and my son learned to fly fish, we both would head out each day, I still spent a lot of time coaching, rather than fishing , but now he is able to cast and catch fish on his own. He even recently bought his own kayak so he can float with me out on the lakes and rivers and also go on his own. It sure gives a dad great pleasure to see your kids grow to enjoy and appreciate being in the outdoors.
My daughter does not like to fish, but does enjoy camping and short hikes. Like her Mom , she is an avid reader, and just enjoys sitting outside at the campsite and cooking over the fire.

Wow. I've never even SEEN fish that big in the Smokies, much less caught one. It's obvious David has a lot of skill. I'm hoping I can cath JUST ONE fish the size he is holding, by dumb luck if nothing else.
