Hello all, this is my first post.  I have just started fly tying and fishing in the last few months, and man am I hooked.  A buddy and I went to the Chattooga River on Sunday morning.  Water was high and fast after all of this rain, but the fishing was decent.  I am happy to report that from two hours of fishing I was able to hook and land 2 11"-12" rainbows on some streamer patterns that I tied myself.  What a great feeling!  My buddy, unfortunately, did not have the same luck.  Finally packed in and made the trek back to the car, and rode to a small stream near the headwaters of the Chauga river.  Another hike through brush ensued, and finally got to a good portion of the river that was looking pretty fishy.  Managed 1 more rainbow of about 10"-12", once again on a streamer pattern, in about an hour of fishing.  Overall a very good day, and all fish were released to fight another day.  Glad that I found this board, and look forward to many more posts.  One question, do any of you have advice for a good river access points in SC?  We found two on Sunday, but definitely want to find more.

I bet not........at least in the direction that you are thinking.

I was born by the river in a little tent,<br />And just like the river I've been running ever since,<br />It's been a long, long time coming,<br />But I know change is gonna come.


Even though the access point is probably one of the most used access points in the southeast, I asked him to take it down and he did so there's that.  Do an intro now.

My son: My dad has two fish on his car and they're both trout!
