Default First Backcountry Trip - Survived

I originally posted on the Smoky Fishing section of the forum asking for advice since our plans were to camp and fish with the hope of catching fish. However, due to high water and inexperience, we were skunked in terms of fish but successful in our first camping experience ever. We hiked up about 1.3 miles to campsite 50 and set up our tent, filtered water, cooked food over a fire, hung our bear sack, endured a downpour in the middle of the night. All in all, an incredibly fun time. We can't wait to go back and catch some fish next time. We did hit some stocked streams on our way home and my 12 year old managed to land a few nice stockers while his dad extended the skunk for the whole trip.

Excellent post and great pictures. Looks like everyone had a great time. Reading about your trip got me thinking about our mountain vacation trip is getting closer to.

Thanks for sharing your trip with us

Great pics thanks hookedontrout. Just keep going back and trying eventually it will click and you will be into fish like you wouldn't believe. Took me many many trips to the mountains of "fishing practice" before I slowly got better. I still have a few practice days now and then (others call it skunked but I won't use that word). Any family that all carries big knives strapped to them is alright in my book lol.

Ditto on the big knives LOL. Definition of the luckiest man in the world; a father who is blessed with sons for his fishing/backpacking buddies. You are indeed a wealthy man.
