I just got back from my 1st outing to the Clinch River. I heard about an area just above the jail and decided to give it a try. There was a man there that was making his way across the river and I have to say that his casting was flawless.
He seemed to be making his way back to the parking lot when I asked him some questions about his set up. He was very accomodating and did not seem to mind my questions, we talked for about 20 minutes about poles, flies and lines, the Clinch and the GSMNP and after that he gave me a fly that he said works well in the clinch and one that will work well in the park.
I was glad to speak to someone who was familiar with the area and did not expect the gifts.
