Default TN trout vs. AR trout

Ok........slightly unrelated to the fishing board.....may be taboo, but sounds fun.

My family all came from east TN and western NC, so I have always kind of been a Vol fan. Not to mention the great TN fans.

BUT......this is the time of year, I have to stop. So here is the poll.......

This guy from Arkansas needs to get real. I wonder if he has ever had a GSMNP trout on the end of a line. He probably means NC not TN

Arkansastravler, Sorry if my tone sounded harsh, meant no harm. May wife accuses me of over reacting all the time. I don't get out much.

Ahem. I just have to point out that Arkansas trout are - as is now apparent - well known for both their speed and their size. In fact, I've heard them called the fifth-best trout in the country, a statement I take exception to, as I believe them to be the best, or number-one, trout in the country. I think we will soon know the answer to this question.

I live in Townsend, Tennessee but I grew up in Kentucky. I'm older than most of you so this may be hard for you to comprehend. I stopped in Townsend on my journey down the Appalachians because my horse threw a shoe and my mule was pregnant. I liked it here so I just stayed. Back in those days we kept all the trout we caught because we were poor and we needed them for food. I've cleaned a bunch of trout I caught in the Cumberland River in Kentucky. I can tell you for sure, they are "Bluebloods". I've got a photo at home that I'll try to find and post. It needs to be scanned because back then a camera weighed 10 pounds and we just got prints. I've got a photo of a limit of trout with nothing under 20". I release all trout now. I'm not much of a sports fan. I do remember that when I was a kid we didn't have those oblong balls to play with. Ours were round. I was a personal friend (or at least he shook my hand at a science fair) of Adolph Rupp. But now, I'm a fan of Tennessee Trout because they live in a beautiful place. In fact, I am fan of all fish, especially caught on a fly and I favor those who rise up to the top to get it.
