After another victorious soccer game, I headed up the road into Virginia to get down to eastern Tennessee. Stopping in at Rod's fly shop I picked up some supplies, everybody was still talking abotw the BOW hatch two weeks ago.

Headed on down the river only to realize that the water was up, turns out there was a two hour release and I had to wait for the water to fall as the upper river was stacked up with long rods. Clear skies and warm weather forced the angler hatch. I'm waiting for the weather to turn nasty, bring on the BOWs!

Picked off a few in some new spots and then fished the surface. The fish weren't as active as I would have hoped but I managed to get a few to hand. Then my CFO reel jammed up and ended my day. I appears that the spindle has unscrewed and bent the rim of the spool binding things up tight.

After borrowing a reel from River Man, I got back on the water the next day and nymphed in the morning and fished dries in the afternoon. Sparkle Duns, Snowshoe Biots and CDC patters, brought the fish to the surface.  Dropped my forceps into a deep run. I tend to loose a pair every year. Had a few memorable moments with big fish breaking off on submerged branches,  ferocious head shakes while leaping out of the river and broken knots.

I caught enough and headed back home in the afternoon, well before sunset, but I'll be back again soon enough.

Sounds like a great trip, even with the Trials of Jobe.

Flyman, You don't have any spies in the lowcountry of SC, do you?  If so, no more watching midget wrestling in Myrtle Beach for me! >:D


possessed

Good stuff, nice looking troots.

Too late stump knocker, you have already been busted, your vehicle has been seen at the all you can drink draft beer for a $1 night.  We all know what happens at those kink of places. IMO midget mud wrestling is better than daytime tv. :D
