Default nice day on the Holston

It was such a beautiful Saturday, I took the canoe out for a float trip.



The bass were hitting topwater and put a nice bend in the old glass Fenwick.



love to see beautifully marked fish.





Had a few of these pesky fish bother my fly also!



Fished for carp mid day when the bassin was slow. They are always a hoot and I got to see about 30yds of my backing.



caught and released everything for another day.

Nice pictures!! It looks like it was a great day in more than one way. What fly did the rainbow take? Was it a bass fly?

I saw you, but didn't know it was you or would have said hello.

Again Gary, nice!! That one Smallie you have there looks lighter and a lot greener than the others, I wonder why?? I noticed how dark a lot of them are in contrast to my local waters and then that one there looks like the pic could have been taken here on the Roanoke River system. Looks like a great time!!

I floated downstream and fished around the upper islands. The wind picked up, constantly changing directions, made it tough to keep the canoe in position for drifting. I went back up to shoals later in the afternoon and waded around. caught a lot of fish but no bass over 15".

The only drift boat I saw was Rusty F that morning at the launch. Were you in a boat or the blue Mokai?

I didn't see Rusty, but was gone pretty early. I saw someone in a canoe fly-fishing, and thought it might have been you after I saw this thread. Guess not.

The wind was a nightmare.

On a side note the fish coloration varies greatly in bass depending on their mood and location in the river. Alot of fish which strike flies will be jet black due to excitement/aggression levels where as many others will be more bronze. The color change can happen almost instananeous and is really quite fascinating.

Hey Randy, Do you have any pictures of the "smallmouth drift boat" yet? I've been anxious to see it since talking at Troutfest.
