    I will be taking my first ever trip to Tennessee this June. I will be staying in the La Follette area for a week. I already have a float trip on the Clinch River, and a charted on Norris Lake scheduled. I am looking at traveling to The Great Smoky Mountains National Park and doing a little fishing. I am mainly a warm water fisherman so all this trout stuff is pretty new. I am looking forward to exploring the park and trying to catch a few trout. Thanks for allowing to join the forums.

    Just to give a little background. I was born in Ohio, grew up in Maryland where I joined the Army. Was stationed in Germany, California, and Texas. Got out after ten years and went back to Maryland. I did not fish until I moved to Indiana in 2002. I started fishing about 2004 the fly fishing around 2006. Used to fish both styles but the last 5 years it has either been Tenkara or Fly Fishing. I also volunteer with the local PHW. At times I wish I would have started fishing earlier in life but then I may not be where I am if I did.

    Welcome Mike. If you're like me you'll be traveling down every chance you get. I'm a bit south of Dayton, OH. I could drive 90 minutes to the Mad or Brookville, but normally end up adding another 4 hours to get to the Smokies. One of these days I'm going to hit hatchery creek on the trip down..
