West Virginia <3 (tilt your head to the right for all you old fogies)

Why on earth would you drive down here when you're hours away from the Cranberry Backcountry? That's a sin.

It's a "buddy" trip.

My longtime old bud O mine and I maybe get to see one another 3 times a year now-a-days. This is one of them.

He really likes Townsend, GSMNP, TroutFest, LRO, the folks we know and meet down there, and I certainly have no problem with it all. So that's where we go.

Weather not withstanding this is turning into a very nice week. I just caught two more yesterday on a BWO. The first one was pretty small, but the second one was a chubby 10 incher. A fish that size puts up a pretty good fight on a 4wt line. One more day to go, hope it doesn't rain all day. It rained earlier today, but has cleared up nicely. I have never caught a fish everyday I have been here, this will be a new record if I can land one today.

The Jeep is packed and I will be pulling out for my Buddy's place in KY in about two hours.

With any luck, should be in Townsend 11 or 12 Fri.

Ya'all be careful driving!

Sorry I missed most of ya, but I had a great time.

Wish I could say I had a great time AND slayed the fish, but 1 bow and 2 brookies was the meager count. Mostly my fault. Had my fair share of rises and more than a few hook ups, but my timing was off and my luck did not carry me.

Can I blame my new rod?

Marvin,

Glad to have had you in our mountains for a while. Did you get caught in some of the really high water? Some scary stuff there!

Hurry back and slay some more!

Was up by Chimney Tops on Saturday but we got out of the water bout 6-6:30 before the hard rain started.

From what I hear, and what we saw, that was a good thing!

How did you fare?

Well it's been a little over a week since I got back home to Indianapolis. The trip turned out to be a good one. Friday using a yellow neversink cadis and a yellow sally I managed to catch 4 more fish. Two were pretty small, but two of them were in that 8-10 inch range. My last cast of the day hooked me up with something big. It put up a good fight until my 6X tippet snapped. I don't know how big a fish it takes to snap 6X tippet, bit it was a fish big enough to put a huge flex in a 4 wt bamboo rod.

I'll be back in October I hope that trip is as much fun and as successful as this one.
