What a great week of fishing! Got to take the week off from work to fly fish some of my favorite NC/TN streams. Spent Thursday fishing Bradley Fork and must have caught 25+ all on an grey EHC with Hugh's SMB as a dropper. On Friday, fished the Little River above the Elkmont campground, weather was a little ugly, but ended the day catching 40+ fish with the largest being a 16" brown trout. All fish were caught again on a orange EHC with SMB as the dropper fly. Saw a teriffic hatch of large October caddis on the Little River which convinced me to fish a #12 orange EHC all day.
Anyone headed up to fish these streams should take an extra hour to hike in a few miles. The fishing is better and you don't have to worry about fishing behind someone all day. The extra exercise doesnt hurt either
