Default Brookie trip, good pics.

I got out a few days off work this week and decided to do a little fishing. My dad has fished these mountain streams for 40 yrs but the last ten yrs he has had really bad knees and usually cant get around on the rough rivers of the area. He has become a die hard bass fisherman. I talked him into showing me one of his all time favorite brookie streams. To say this stream is remote is a understatement! I doubt very few fisherman wet a line in this little jewel on any given year. All I will say is that the creek is in NC and not in the GSMNP. As for the fishing goes we had a blast. I would say about 40 brookies between us. A few of the fish were very colorful and good sized as well. I caught one little jewel about 9" (see pics). All and all it was just a great day. I really enjoyed watched my dad doing something he loved for so many years. I also got a good history lesson about the area. Well here is a few pics from this beautiful place. Hope everyone gets to have a day like this sometime.

Dad fishing.

One of many specs.....

9 " brookie. One of the most colorful I have ever seen personally.

NIce pics and glad to hear that you were able to get out with your dad. I always enjoy getting out with mine. There are tons of streams in nc that very few people fish, they just require a little effort and planning. I guess they are still biting even with the cooler temps.

I don't live just to fish, but I want to fish just as long as I live.

What beautiful brookies! I am still looking for my first brookie on the Tenn. side of the park. Maybe next year......

I hope you realize how fortunate you are to get to go fishing with your Dad. I wish so much that I could have one more fishing trip with my Dad.....Time goes by so fast as we get older.
