Default Metcalf Bottoms 11/7

I decided to fish the park today in spite of the beautiful weather. Also, I just recently purchased a Kodak Play Sport waterproof videocamera and had been dying to try it out. With a short window of and hour before dark, I decided to fish Metcalf. When I arrived, I noticed that the stream flow was near perfect. I rigged up with a red copper john deep below an

indicator, and it wasn't long before I started picking up a few little guys...



Underwater pic of the same fish..



After catching a few smaller browns and bows, I hooked up with the biggest fish of the day measuring somewhere around
10 inches.





On my way to the car, I couldn't help to notice a massive leaf laying on the ground.

On the way back home, I saw a flock of turkeys picking around on the side of the road which was a good end to a fun day of fishing..

Nice report troutslayer. You catch them all on that red copper John? I caught a big sycamore leaf like that the other day thinking I had hooked a nice fish.

tjw37909, yes I caught all of the fish on that red copper john. I didnt see any fish rising the whole time I was out there so I didn't even try a dry fly.

Nice report and pictures! I fish a red copper john fairly often on the tailwaters and might have to tie one on in the mountains more regularly...

They usually work well for me, especially when the water is higher and I want something that gets their attention.

Nice Lee, How is school going? I would think it would be hard to get you away from the South Holston to come back to the park!

Nice fish troutslayer. If you don't put some meat on those bones, your chestpack is going to tip you over.

Nice troutslayer. Looks like you had a good time. Don't worry about being thin...when you get to be my age you can't keep the weight off.
