Late last week, my wife & I took our 7 month old boy on his first multi-day camping trip.  We spent Thursday and Friday night at Julian Price park, and Saturday we got a hotel room in Asheville to shower up, go out to eat, and celebrate our 4th anniversary.  Friday we did a little hiking in the Wilson Creek area, and I was able to get in about an hour of fishing.  It was a pretty productive hour, with a fish or 2 in every pool.  I typically consider it sacrilege to fish a hook with neon chenille wrapped around it, but they were hungry for weenies.  I found a good mix of browns and rainbows.

Typical pool & run....

I was making 30 foot casts in some of the bigger pools.  These rainbows really fought hard when they hit in the deep pools.  Even made the drag sing a few times.

Best fish of the day, just over 12".  Caught him right in front of the family and brought a smile to Crosby's face.

The fancy beer train was rollin' down the tracks all weekend, so naturally, I didn't hesitate to partake after the hike out.

Nice browns and bows.   ;D

Nice choice of beer...they also make a good Kolsch if that's your thing.

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!

Ben, I'm generally not a fan of german style beers, but I hear Kolsch is a little hoppier than others, so I may give it a try.
I usually stick to stouts, brown ales, and IPAs (particularly those hoppy enough to suck your cheeks in).
For the haters....I also like Coors Light, Peebr, & Bud Heavy.

Also....when I was in A-ville, I noticed that Asheville Hardware closed.  :(

Thanks bro.  I wouldn't exactly call it "epic", but thanks for stoking my family-man lameness.
I'm itchin to get back up there with a 40lb pack and a bottle of cheap whiskey.

Asheville Hardware moved to off the beaten path down the street across from Green Man Brewery.  When my work was in downtown I used to go to their old location a lot, haven't been to their new location much since we moved offices and pretty much only frequent it when I need a specialty item quick-like. 

Well I HATE hoppy beers and like their Kolsch for what that is worth.
