Default fishing report

The people i buy from,wanted me to build a web sight and become a part of facebook-I did-THey are constantly reminding me to post every day--when i come in each morning I try to think of something to write about--It's hard,and it gets old,you get Facebooked and Web Site-ed out--that's why Byron and the LRO fishing report is really quite special because it is there 7 days a week--always fresh,updated,well written.Byron writings on and about Townsend puts you in mind of a Mayberry type of life,small town stuff..Ever notice how other fishing web sites hardly ever have an updated fishing report?It's because the new quickly wears off,when you have to write a fishing report for every day of your life,so rather than do that,you "forget",and that's the end of the fishing reports.which makes the LRO FR all the more amazing.

I agree. I always enjoy reading it, even when the conditions have been semi constant for a while, or in the winter when things are slower.

Have said it before as well... couldn't agree more!!

It's also an added bonus when snippets of your personnel reports seem to find their way into Byron's daily dish. Makes me feel like I'm contributing in some way...

Tight Lines,

Totally agree, lauxier. I read the "fishing" report as much for Byron's slice-of-life-in-Townsend updates and insight on running a flyshop in today's economy as much as anything to do with fishing. Really appreciate all the effort put into the report and this forum.

I bet he gets tired of counting cows everyday. I almost bought some once, but I just couldn't commit to counting them all the time.

When I was first getting into trout fishing in the Park I was too young to drive, there was no weather channel, and any idea about carrying around a computer much less a telephone in your pocket was something out of Dick Tracey. I was only able to fish on those occasions when we would visit my grandparents in Sevierville and the last week of the summer before school started. I can remember visiting the lobby of our local bank that had a teletype machine connected to the national weather service to try and get a heads up on the current and projected weather conditions in the Park. Now the first order of business in the morning is to pull up Bryon's Fishing Report and dream about "what ifs" or if I am lucky to figure out what I need to pack. Thank you Byron for allowing a flatlander to fish vicariously through your daily reports.
