Fished yesterday at Elkmont with droppers. Caught one fish 6 inches long.

All day today on Cosby creek. Between my son and I, we brought 9 to hand over 6 hours, one longer than 6 inches.

You guys that fish the Smokies regularly, Iíve got to hand it to you. No disrespect to the Smokies because i love them, but the fishing pretty much sucks. Hauling a suitcase full of rig halfway across the country to catch mostly fingerlings - well, letís just say I enjoyed a couple of pretty days.
