Man, where has the year gone? Last trip I made just after Thanksgiving and now we're running out of Dec. Some bad weather. work and the TVA have kept me off the river for a while, but I managed a save by running up to the D for some Jurassic Park fishing. Woke up an hour early and hit the road. Climbed up the mountain at day break and was the first car in the parking lot. Sally dog got excited about the time we got to coontree. Her sniffer told here where she was and she couldn't wait to get out of the car and hit the trail.  After a short hike we hit a run and enticed a few to the hit the red and zebra midges. Water was still a lot lower than I like and the fish weren't too active at first.

Went  back up to the parking lot, ran in to Sang and B.R.A. caught a few more up there before heading back down to a shades spot where there were a few BOWs hatching out. I tied on an emeger pattern and caught a couple of decent fish on the surface.

Things really slowed down when the sun hit the water and the fish started midging, I took a small bow with a Leeson loopwing midge emerger and then broke our the homebrew and shared a glass with Snag, B.R.A. and his photog friend, who had been shooting some underwater videos in the hog holes...

The Scotch Wee Heavy hit the spot. BRA went back to work on the water and manage to take a big brown towards the end of the day.  Good times...  -0-

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!

The object of life is not to be on the side of the majority, but to escape finding oneself in the ranks of the insane.

There's a big difference between a dry fly dancing through
a riffle and a weighted fur ball dragging on the bottom.

no, she has to catch her own, she's gettin pretty good at it, chases the big ones out of the pools into the shallows and then nabs 'em off the gravel... she caught a 32 incher yesterday, grown men were sobbing as she gutted it...

jis sayin'

Woolly don't know what to think of man who starts out with dry flys and digresses into eggs and shammy worms by the end of the day ;D
