Yeah, I was gonna TRY and wet a line at Road Prong but even it was blown out.

Check out the link...impressive/scary...

I think Mother Nature is trying to make up for the last two years (in 6 months...)

Anyone starting working on an Ark, yet? (I've got some pretty good tools...)

I can't believe how much more rain that side of the park is getting than the NC side. Must be why there aren't any fish on the NC side

Sorry you guys can't fish for a little while, but I'm glad my first week-long trip to the Smokies was last week and not this one! That much water would have sent me into a lack-of-fishing induced shock...
