We seriously can't catch a break. If the damn TVA isn't spilling the Watauga, mother nature decides to unleash 40 to 60 mph winds on E. Tenn. Well needless to say the boat was hitched Tuesday night with the thought of finally floating the Watauga after what seems to be an eternity of inconveniences. And of course we see the weather report. So Rhody and I were bound and determined to fish somewhere hell or high water. Well the only other option was the D, not my first choice, but it'll do given our options other options were DH waters.

Not that I am talking shit about the D, but the crowds that frequent her waters, and the fact that I am a lazy boat fisherman weigh in. The term that best describes Wednesday is " Lights Out". The monsoon brought the river up in a hurry, but the fishing was nonstop from about 10 to 3, and we saw maybe 3 or 4 other fisherman all day.

Eggi Juans and small Raul Specials were the ticket, along with Bitch Creeks. Here are a few pics ... Oh sorry, no hippie beer pics. Although there were a few IPA's and a Moose Drool guzzled!  ;D

dirty job but somebody's got to do it...

best times to fish there are usually during the worst weather....
ex - I'm not going to live with you through one more fishing season!

me -There's a season?

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!

Exactly... I have spent one to many days there dodging the fisherman hatch on the D, so the new "MO" is crappy weather, or a E. Tenn. !  ;hb

Rhody brewed the Drool. He had been telling me about his home brew, so after listening to my belly aching, he came across with the goods... I see my self taking up home brewing in the future ;hb
