I love me some Cataloochee, my favorite place in the GSMNP. That brook in the first pic would like and taste great on a stick.

First year in the Smokies = zero trout
Second year in the Smokies = 1 small rainbow
Third year = 1 tiny speck and 6 small bows

I am not very good at fly fishing overall but much worse in the GSMNP for some reason. I have caught tons and tons of rhodo, trees, logs, and branches. However, I have a date with destiny in October when we make a fall trip to Cataloochee.

I don't know if I'll ever fully leave the trees and rhodo behind. I am in them less frequently than my first few years fishing the mountains. BTW, I went fishing with Brownie today. Heck of a nice guy. I showed him around the mountains in exchange for lunch! He caught more fish than me his first day in the mountains. I think he was using some sort of secret fly fishing techniques (like a good cast to the right part of the water). I guess that's what I get for acting like I know something!

Thanks everyone for the encouragement and congratulations. I really enjoy this forum.

As long as we are airing out the dirty laundry... I left a few flies and nymphs in the trees as well. I've dropped an entire box into the water and watched it float away at Tremont and have missed many more fish than I care to admit to. But you can't argue with the opportunity to spend time in a place like GSMNP.

My wife took this photo at Greenbrier while I fished:

With a backdrop like that who wouldn't want to fish?

I may be a tree hugger, but at least I'm not a "Rhodo Kisser"
