Default Sunday on Caney Fork

Fished at Happy Hollow today for the first time. Waded pretty far upriver to get away from the crowd. Lots of dark, low laying clouds, gusting over the river. Fishing was slow until around noon. Thats when things really picked up. Found a nice run that had several fish stocked up in it. I was able to land several on a Zebra Midge. I think I missed more fish today than I ever have. Hooked into a real nice one...not sure what it was, but it broke me off almost instantly. Those big guys don't waste any time once they realize they're hooked.

Nice fish! I can't wait to fish the Caney again. I'll probably hit it at least once or twice over spring break which starts at the end of this week. You interested in fishing any the first week in March?

Kevin, you should head over this way and check out the Caney sometime. I like it a lot better than the Clinch. There are more access points and more fishable water. A lot of nice fish in that river too...I'm sure you wouldn't be disappointed.

That is, if you ever get away from the HI...I see you're doing pretty well over there.

Was that you that stopped & talked to me & Caneybuff on the island? I started off with the Zebra in that deeper water, no luck, they went wild on a PT though. It was a tad windy.

I thought that was you fishing when I came by. You looked pretty focused on drifting that nymph. How far up did you two go? Caught a real nice bow not too far up the river from you...well, almost caught. I didn't quite get a chance to take the hook out of him. Wind sure did make things difficult for me. I'm working downtown now, so I'll have to stop by the shop sometime on my lunch break.

BTW...what was that setup you were using? Looked reeal nice!

That was a Zero Gravity with a Hardy JLH5 reel, i'm a little bit fond of it.
