Default Elkmont- Sunday 4/13/14

I have been swamped the last week or so between work, working on a Troutfest committee (get your tickets I can tell you the different auction items are going to be top notch this year and for a good cause), and trying to fish, so will try to play catch up.

The first shot is a picture just for Ducky, i have a new stream for you, it's new for me and I sure did not do it justice. There is a brookie in every hole and is crying for your posse's level of small stream expertise. Ask me at Troutfest, I will give you all the details, I would love to see a man of your skill work it! (P.S It's not in the park)

On Sunday I met my friend Dave at Elkmont, a Clinch TU alumni who had never fished Elkmont. His wife Melissa a TU officer was working with Casting for Recovery (no boys allowed) in Gatlinburg, so he was free for a few hours to discover new water. It was cool for me to play guide and feel no personal pressure to catch fish, I showed him some favorite holes and he managed to land and hit a few even with my help or hinderance!

It was a beautiful day, and for someone who fishes solo 90% of the the time it was nice to spend it with a friend.

Dave Gettin Set

Hookin it

Lettin her go

Dave is sworn to secercy on this hole

Dave saying "I did not double pinkie swear to that, I am showing my wife!

As any good guide Dave was provided at the end of the jaunt with an adult beverage and free popcorn and I was given an afternoon of showing off the park. A fair trade for both of us!
"It starts with a raindrop, don't let it end with a teardrop!"

"Nothing straightens out my mind like a twisting mountain stream!"

Good of you to share your stomin' ground with a newby.

I think I want a report from that Blue Line also

And I hate to sound like Debbie Downer, but just because your playing guide, doesn't mean there is any less pressure for you to catch fish
Call me if you want to go fishing, boating, hiking, or if you want to buy a foamie
