You'll never be the same. I got lucky and caught one the first day in the first run I fished...about 7 inches long...a little bow. Took me 3 more trips before I caught another! Can catch them on a regular basis now, but I don't catch huge numbers. Congrats and welcome to the brotherhood!

Next I want to take the grade the 4 miles to New World and check it out. From there it would be cool to make it to Chimney Rocks. And one even dreams of making it all the way up to Thunderhead. I say dream because last post I saw on Griztrax about this said it took like 12 hours. I think the last 1/2 mile took like 6 hours of Rhodo ****. OK so it's 3 trips & one I'll probably only just dream about

Another cool hike I want to do is up Starkey to AT. It's good trail till at least 2/3 mile up Starkey. Anyone want to venture into the Devil's Courthouse?
Duckypaddler,

I hiked to and past the New World around 8 yrs ago. The New World area is (was) pretty rough. I remember crawling (scrunching) through there. I recommend going in late fall/winter to make it an easier trip Try to during a Google search on the Defeat Ridge Trail, I read a report by some local hikers of going all the way to the spine. Can't remember the lady's name, but she complained about her pack continually hanging up while she went through the New World area. Once you get out of that area and are heading up the ridge it's a nice hike. I was on day hike, wasn't really prepared for the excursion and I turned around before getting to the spine. I want to do it again someday, but go all the way to the spine, but I won't do it during the growing season.

I am curious what the headwaters of Sam's Creek are like? Crockett and I had a great trip but it gets rough up there. And seemed the further up we went the better quality of fish we got into. I am looking forward to hitting there early Spring and see what it's like. It was my first time catching specs in the park.
