This month is a time of transition. I'm graduating, my wife's graduating, we're starting new jobs and moving to Knoxville. (La Follette, but no one has ever heard of that.) I havn't gotten to fish with my folks in a while. I've been sidelined myself since knee surgery last fall. We decided to make it a 5 day camping / fishing trip in the Cherokee National Forest. The fish were mostly small, the weather sucked, Dad had bronchitis, and brother had to leave early. But, it was a good time anyway. Going the better part of 5 days with no cell signal is a gift. We ended up fishing 2 small streams, and 2 medium streams with good flow. We had 2 camps that were both on the river. I got to fish some evening hatches which is something I've never really done. Some of y'all might know where I'm talking about.

Life is nothing but a constant transition toward whatever is next. Congrats, and good luck.

Some pretty water there. Much obliged.

JD, has your father recently emigrated from the upper mid west to Greenville TN?  If so, I have met him sneaking around Carrol Cnty Va.

Good stuff there.

Not that I'm aware of, but you never know with that guy.

Thanks y'all. It was good to get out. I havn't done much tailwater fishing, but I'm going to be about a half hour drive from the Clinch. I gotta figure it out.

Good stuff! Nothing like a few days to recharge the battery and spend some time with family. Seems like we're always too damn busy these days.
