Default May Showers

Well, I took a day off and headed to the mountains. Arrived at my aunts house in Knoxville to realize I had contracted a really nasty little cold. Had some dinner and talked for a bit and went to bed. I woke to feeling even worse but decided I would take some daytime cold medicine and head to the mountains anyway. I found a lot of skinny water and found that my dropper was hanging up too much so I went with a dry only and started catching fish instead of spooking them by getting my line unsnagged off the bottom. I was there about an hour and caught three fish but the thunderstorms moved in and I got soaked. I decided it was best to go to my sisters to dry off and recoup and try again tomorrow. If I do well I will post more later. There are a few more pics on my blog. I'll be back in the morning and hopefully have a brookie or two to post.

Hey 108! Thinking about hitting it for an hour or two when I wake up (don't know when it will be). Gonna try and go over to roaring fork but I've been sick as a dog. I'll be in my wife's corrolla and park at the bottom of the hill on the exit side and fishing my way up. If I can remember I'll post in the a.m. when I'm leaving. That's about as good as I can do on short notice. Hope you and yours are well. I've gotten a lot better since we last met. Still not much of a nymph fisherman, at least in the park.

108 the dries were excellent. Caught about 10 in 3 hours. One or two decent ones and the rest were real small. Keep in touch and I'll try and post earlier about my next trip.
