Default November Stripers

As my 75 year old buddy in Maine says....."Something to do" on a beautiful night in TN with great friends...#15 pound striper on 8wt. TFO (thanks Byron and Paula) and a 1/0 Gray and White CC. That's a Campbell Clauser. I think Dean's are better than Bob Clausers.

Thanks to Plat. Angler for help with downsizing the file and not the fish!

That's a great fish! Is it worth fishing from shore below the dams such as at Watts Bar? I travel through that area going home from school and back all the time and have thought about ripping some streamers from shore just to see what would bite...

Default Watts Bar

Plat.
I am not sure about Watts Bar. I believe someone wrote earlier about wading around there. You could certainly do Melton Hill or Loudon from shore if you could get some room to cast. Of course I would suggest doing it with the water off, in order to get your fly down. Occationally they bust the surface generating but think you would have a tough time getting a Crease fly big enough that could compete with a big Zaraspook. You just need to call me sometime and we will go.
