Enough is enough! I caught a glimpse of paradise whilst watching TV at 4AM Friday morning, some realtor was advertising mountain property in WNC and I got a full dose of Jonesing.
Saturday morning came in good timing and I found myself passing the usual icons down I-40W. I arrived in great time and got outta the gimp rental and had a look around, not a soul. Perfection. I got into my gear, cracked the gatorade and headed up the mini beastly trail. Fall is finally here at my local and she's purdier than ever. Dig these pix...

1st little bruiser brown came from this pool. I decided against folk lore and fished lower down than usual. Don't you hate it when you are walking streamside and see a hole and know theres gots to be a decent little fish in it, but someone who claims they know the stream like the back of their hand says keep walking??? Well, I decided to be my own judge and tied to this, Im a poor listener. This guy disproved the theory...

The weather was glorious and I was thankful I just wore a Tshirt and a pair of briefs plus the waders. The temps got to around 78F. Once I got to the supposed fishable section, I already had two dozen to hand and this is where I saw magic. Or maybe fish pornography. Two brookies gettin it on. I pretty much stayed out of the creek for the rest of my session upstream knowing full well my 210lb ass would all but destroy a redd or 20...

Took a brief lunch after ruining a hook-up on a 13" brown who deliberately swallowed the sz 24 bwo but I jerked the fly clean outta his mouth before he dipped his tail  b';. Decided to slot this beast sandwich down so I had more premium fuel to continue upstream...sorry Muddlerman, this is copyright enfringement of sandwich shotters mate ::)

Once I decided enough was enough, I changed up to dry only and tore them up, the ticket? a sz 18 EHC with peacock hackle.

This brookies tail still impresses me. that guy was only about 5-6" and his tail was almost 1/3 of his size! I guess he must be built to swim back over that 10ft waterfall which isn't a plunge style, it cascades so he can find little crevices and "bunny hop" back to brookie only turf...

Bro, I would claim it legit. I would need a 20lb bag of purina force fed down the hatch to conjure up that heap!!! Still a very impressive shittage by any standards. I bet that poor fucker had major RING STING!!! :laugh:

Looks like a great trip - thanks.

That might be Yak shit - TM was probably up there.

Great to see an old still - but you wouldn't want to see a live one, else you'd be a dead one.

Stalk softly and carry a green stick.

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!

There's more B.S. in fly fishing than there is in a Kansas feedlot.
