Default Clinch River Outfitters

Where has Clinch River Outfitters moved to? Or have they gone out of business?

I was in there a while back and the guy in there said they were thinking about closing. On the other hand I was also told they moved, But I don't know where. Maybe you could call the Chamber of Commerce and find out. On a different note, I noticed that good looking Lab on your avitar. I just lost my Lab this week. He was 16. Had alot of great times with old Jake. I'll never have any other kind of dog. You just can't beat a Lab. Yours is sure handsome {or pretty} which ever might be the case.

I believe you are referring to CR Outfitters, Not to be confused with Clinch River Outfitters the guide service. CR Outfitters moved next to what used to be Hensleys Market further down hwy 61 towards Norris/Andersonville.

Default CR Outfitters move

Yes, I was referring to the shop, not the guide service. Thanks for the information on their new location oldschool.

No Hackle, sorry to hear about Jake. Ms. Annie is now 16 months old and my constant companion. She loves water and the woods as I do so we are a good match! If you fish the Clinch much you will see her out there on the river with me. Stop and meet us sometime!

I fish the Clinch alot,If you let me know I would make it a point to meet you guys. I am off most Mondays. She's a very pretty girl. You can tell the young lady I said that. Enjoy her, she''ll be 16 before you know it. I really loved my dog. Think of him every day. Heck I think I here him bark every now and again. I know people w/o dogs don't understand, but the ones that do know where I'm coming from. Don't catch'em all.

Bro, I feel you...I am sorry to hear about your buddy passing on to the heavens. You will be with him again one day. One thing to think of; is that you were so blessed to have his company for 16 years. Also; he will always be in your heart and warm memories.

No Hackle, I am retired so any weekday that the generation schedule looks good and fishing seems like a good idea, I either head to the Clinch or up to Little River in the park.

I was on the Clinch Friday and had a much better day than my last two outings at the jail. As others have commented, fishing down low has been tough but Friday, things were getting back to normal for me, meaning I was catching more than one or two fish. Had one to break my line with ease (6X) and another good one yanked free on a good three foot leap out of the water. Landed one nice 16 incher and several smaller ones before the water started rising. Oddly, or for me at least, they are ignoring zebra midges of any color, preferring a BHPT with a little flash on the back in a size 16 or 18. They are just barely tapping it too, hard to tell if you're getting a strike or dragging bottom.

I'll tell Ms. Annie she has an admirer. Thanks for the compliments, she is a great dog. I'll try to remember to give you a shout next time we head up to the Clinch on Monday.

Default CR Outfitters

I stopped by CR Outfitters today and picked up some tying supplies and plenty of tippet. I like their new shop and its layout.

FYI: It is located about 1/2 mile past the old location. Go through the next red-light and take an immediate right in to the retail center. It is located next to the AC services office.
