Jim,
Just received my order from LRO. Your book looks great! Can't wait to sit down and check it out.
Also got Lowe's Fly Pattern Guide, another neat book.
3 weeks to go.....
Can't wait!!!!
A.T.

A.T.
I just thought of another small stream you might like. Little Santeetlah Creek runs thru Joyce Kilmer Memorial Forest. You can start fishing at the turn off of the main road and fish to the Run a Round(the parking lot where the trail to the forest begins). If you go above the parking lot it"s what we locals call a "laurel thicket" . Mostly small bows and an occasional brown. Bob Creek and Sand Creek on Big Santeetlah could be good too. There on the way to Johns Branch and there should be signs with the creek names on them unless someone has pulled then up. This happens here frequently. Good Luck

Apache Trout--Roger Lowe is, like me, a son of the Smokies. He grew up in Waynesville, learned at least some of his fly-tying skills from the late Bennie Joe Craig (although I suspect he mostly taught himself), and has fished mountain streams all his life. He also compiled a little pattern guidebook which is most useful, although it's possible it is out of print.

A. T. (and snowbird fly)--Here are even more suggestions, although I suspect you have begun to get the message--Graham County is a mighty fine base of trout-fishing operations.
1. Squally Creek
2. Long Creek
3. Sassafrass Creek (feeds Big Snowbird three miles above Junction)
4. Tululah River including right in town
5. Wright Creek
Good luck!

Thanks Jim & Snowbird!
Now I'm thinking about an early spring trip as well. :-)

Default Snowbird

Apache Trout, look under the "Trout Fishing in other States" heading. There is a quite a lengthy thread for Snowbird, it has been on this board since 07 or 08. Attractor patterns will work on Big Snowbird. The stream is full of Golden Stones (16's-6's). Hope you enjoy your stay and if you see an old blue Grand Wagoneer, stop and say hello.
Best,
John
