After dealing with alot of shit this past week, I decided to find higher ground, especially since Raleigh was gonna get dumped on by Irene.

Friday set off to the highest peak in all of eastern US. But as I would have it, I stopped everytime I saw a trickle running under the road.

Was a bit bummed that the bears have been scaring the touristas, so the highest elevation creek was not available to get pounded.

Fished every single blueline on the eastern slope and ended up getting slammed over and over again. Fish were full of shit though. Im guessing the barometer drop scared 'em, so they weren't commiting to eats.
Headed over to TX's for a hearty dinner and plenty of shit shoot and beer.

This rod and reel is unbelievable.
Woke up late Sat morning and headed to the blueline stronghold of WNC. TX wasted no time on waxing the crap outta all three species...

Good lookin' stuff Mike.  Nice work as expected.   'c;

That is one awesome shot of TX's swimming hole.

Those tourista-scaring bears threw a wrench in my plans two weekends ago as well.   As I recall they closed the chit 2 days before I was heading over there, way to go.   b';

British - shat is shit past tense. Rods are your trousers or pants, put em together and do the math. If you were there you would have parked a coil in your trunks 8)

Offers on the table Woowee, I drive by your house everytime I head west...
