    Lake Run Fish...

    For any of you who may be interested, this moon phase, high water and cold should have the run in full swing. I have not fished it in two years now, so can't say whether there are many fish up...

    Certainly glad you had some luck! Yeah that creek is full of golden stones, so the Tellico is hard to beat. There is a pretty good fly shop at the NOC on the Nantahala River. It is actually across...

    Late Trip

    That is awfully late, be careful. Might even wait until morning... if from the Knoxville area. You likely won't see a soul, or have cell service through Deals Gap without a Sat phone (which I do...

    Son fishing.

    Granny Knot,
    Yes that is, thank you! He caught three fish that afternoon. And when he said he had had enough, we went home.
    Hope he will be a little more "up for it" next time.
    Thanks again,...
