I forgot to mention that we saw an eagle dive for and miss a fish on the flat water by the large sycamore tree. Also saw a dead 12" brown... couldn't determine why caused its demise .

Just opened most recent issue of Va. Wildlife Magazine to find article on the Smith with our own Al and someone named Doug quoted.

They'll quote any jackass, I guess.

A bunch of nobodies.  The Corps of Engineers don't even know who those nobodies are.

I haven't seen it yet (to cheap to subscribe :embarassed: )  DGIF is sending me a couple copies. I may sign one and send it to my buddy BW.

Hard to believe the quotes from two of our Smith River sages.

Doug: "The most resourceful way to harvest the wild Smith River browns is with natural baits (worms, mealworms, crickets, etc.) fished on long classic glass rods, held high, allowing the enticement to move normally through the deep crevasses found throughout the river."

Al: "I rarely fish the river with the guys anymore.  It just is not as much fun as it used to be.  Now, angling with the gals, that is a different, more entertaining, exhilarating endeavor. As my pals tell me, I still got game."     
"Enjoy every sandwich."  Warren Zevon

Ha. Sounds about right!

Saturday afternoon I went back to the usual spot. That was a couple of days ago, so I may have forgotten some of the details. I was a bit surprised that I was the only car in the lot. I debated about wet wading and put on the leaky wader pants. I keep meaning to try and fix the leaks with an alcohol spray, but just haven't gotten around to it yet.
The rod was rigged with a dry dropper and stayed with a sulfur comparadun with a splitback. It didn't take long before a fish took the dropper. I caught a half dozen before things slowed down and the fish refused to cooperate.
A kingfisher made a noisy flyby and waxwings few about picking off invisible insects. The sun is setting earlier now so I was off the water by 7:30
Here are a few pics
