I've fished with Steve a few times. He is an excellent dry fly fisherman. I don't think I've seen him nymph fish. He grew up in Waynesville, NC. and fished the park most of his life. He is a line mending machine.

Default salamanders...

i caught a brown last year in cataloochee that was only about 9 in., but when i hooked it i thought it felt like a 12 incher...why was that? it had a really full belly...2 salamanders were in its stomach when i cleaned her, making her feel much heavier than i expected

Wow, they must have been small salamanders to fit into a 9 incher. I've seen salamander on the trail up to Spence Field just below Bote Mt Trail. I remember taking my vet zoo and comp zoo classes, lot's of fun. I think this is a good idea if you are after a big un, but I doubt you get much response from the average trout, unless you tie a small version of it.

I think it depends on the stream whether salamanders will work or not, because some of them are a little bit poisonous, like frogs. For example, there is a lake in Pickett State Park where you can often see hundreds of salamanders, and bass right beside them, that won't touch them.

Yeah spring lizards is actually what all of the older gentleman referred to them as. Floating one of those bad boys down in a deep run at dawn/dusk in the summer has got to be interesting.........
