Default Found: Hat 5/20/2014

I was fishing downstream a bit from Elkmont this morning on the last day of a brief camping trip when I came across what appeared to be someone's lucky fishing hat. It was stranded on a rock mid-stream and had already drawn a crowd of mayfly nymphs that moved into what must have been a palace for them. Anyway, said hat is now at LRO if you are looking for it. I left with it with Daniel this afternoon so check with him if you are missing one.

Will try to get up more of a report later but fishing was good. Saw lots of bugs coming off as everyone else has been reporting and fish were eating well both on top and subsurface. All fish were really healthy and had obviously been feasting on the recent hatches.

Hopefully the owner didn't lose it in a fall/accident.

Agreed. It made me concerned that I was going to find someone facedown in the river upstream... That would seriously ruin my fishing trip if I ever came upon that. Hope whoever it belongs to is doing fine.

I know some kayakers that came up on a floating dead body while paddling the Sinks that was a suicide. If the situation wasn't bad enough the held the boaters as possible suspects for a few hours till they could clear them.

That's a BAD day in the Smokies

Thumbs up

Good stewardship as always David! I too, hope the person did not meet any misfortune.
