Drove up to Boone to deliver some stuff to my son and kept on going over the hump to fish the TN tailrace. Not many bugs in the air and not fish rising so nymphing in order. Hooked a fish, realized I left the net in the car, so no photos. Tried a few times fish broke off, no photo. Hooked a Leroy and he put up I good fight, couldn't keep him from running downstream and he left me hanging on a ledge. Bowns and a few browns, moved on up a ways, and hooked a decent bow which worried me, as he swam in the pool a brown chased it around. Got the bow to run down out of the pool and I ran down to corral it in some slack water. Back up to the pool I worked it hard before I got into the brown I had seen earlier. Then I hooked Leroy's brother and had to run down those slick rocks about 50 yards before I could bring it to hand. On the way out I ran into GetBent and Senor Coffee who were floating the low water hunting heads.

Here's the photo dump:

Pastor explains icons to my son: you know like the fish symbol on the back of cars.

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

18+2=20 as measured from finger tips to elbow (cubit) plus 2, that's how we count in merica saffabreath
