Thanks for the welcome Jim. I have enjoyed reading your posts on this forum. I almost purchased your book during my last visit before I knew you contributed to this forum. I have since ordered your book and look forward to reading it. I will have to try the dry fly with a dropper my next trip. I had read several fishing reports by Byron Begley which suggested it but was uncertain of the proper technique. As far as the origin of the Tellico nymph is concerned I can see I need to do my homework.

You must have fished behind him up there so that makes your catches more of an accomplishment in my mind ha.
Kim, you must have had a pretty good day. I have enacted a "No fish left behind" policy but might have missed a couple. The majority of my fish were bows that day...

Welcome to the board.

Kim--When it comes to "homework" on Tellico nymphs or anything else connected with fly flishing for trout, I'll simply share my favorite quotation from Horace Kephart. There's a lot about the man, and especially his book, Our Southern Highlanders, which frosts my grits (and I'll be speaking to that effect in an invitation-only Kephart symposium at the Univ. of Tennessee in November), but his Camping & Woodcraft is wonderful. In it he writes: "In the school of the outdoors there is no graduation day."
That certainly applies to fly fishing in the Smokies, and simply knowing there's always a new challenge, always something to learn, just adds to the appeal.

Believe it or not, I have never caught anything on the Tellico nymph! I have fished it in several places in east Tennessee, including the park and the Tellico river, and never got a thing!

Strange... I consider the Tellico a high producer.

What length fuse are you using?
I have fished it hard in the park, the Tellico, Bald River, Citico, North River, and the Hiwassee. As I said, never caught anything on it. With the weather cooling down, I'll tie a couple and try them on the Hiwassee next week. Maybe......?

Welcome to the board.
Thanks for the welcome, It was a great day. "no fish left behind", I love it! I will keep that quote in mind for future reference. I'm going to keep on believing that I did fish the same waters; I can use all the confidence in my fly fishing abilities I can get. I like the Picture of what I assume is your dog. My daughter has my German Short-hair with her now but I had a lot of fun hunting behind her. I look forward to reading posts from local fly fisherman like yourself to keep plugged into whats happening in the park.

That is my girl Hazel (named after the creek) she will be two years old in December. She is bird crazy.

Anyone who is a fan of the GSP is alright in my book. Next time your going to hit the park shoot me an email if I can help out in anyway.

Just keep following Grouseman around, you'll be alright.

Thanks Jason, I will keep that in mind. I will be on a quest for Browns on my next trip. Keep me posted on the Grouse hunting. I haven't hunted for grouse in over 10 years, I swear their feathered guided missiles.

Do I sense a little fly fishing animosity between you and Flyman? I sense a fly fishing challenge brewing.
