I headed out to visit the local beer store for their Saturday sampling of Brown Ale, but Sally and I were turned away at the door, no dogs allowed anymore, guess I'll find another place to shop. Plans were to head up to Philpott's field and run the dog and maybe do a little fishing and perhaps snap a few pictures. The summer crops had been turned over and there were only a few small patched of peppers and greens. Sally ran the field sniffing out rabbits and other critters on the way to the river.

Plenty of smaller trout were caught although it was slow in the middle of the day, but that could be expected with the brilliant blue skies. Later in the evening the action picked up again and some decent fish were caught byall.Guests are not allowed to view images in posts, please Register or Login
No dogs is BS, if they allowed them before why turn them away now. I would definitely take my business elsewhere.
The lose of the big brown will be a scenario that will play over and over in east Tenn. With thoe toads on the move, there will be tons of hook ups some landed, but more lost. Way to stick em twice!
I will look for the corrected pics....
Damn good photo's. I thought I was still jrunk, seeing them twice!
I left the camera in the car in the afternoon, Karl got some shots... maybe he'll post them, if Mississippi has internet... -0-
Awesome shots and nice fish! Cool to get the big guy to eat again.
Doesn't look like you missed a beat. Great photos. 0:0
Awesome pics/report as always. I went to the South Holston for the first time ever this past Saturday. Left Huntsville at 2am, drove straight there, tried to ahead of the water coming. It arrived around 11am and drove me off. Waited a while and went back out. Caught one small brown, but on a dry at least. That river was humbling. I left and made the long drive, with a feeling of failure. I really look up to you guys that consistently catch there! 0:0
Nice report Woolly. Your pictures never cease to amaze me. bd;0
That backside of the island picture is beautiful, Keith.
Ole Miss does have the intertweeb, but I have to climb the telephone post to use it.......
Mikey was a little late, but we met up at 8:30 and headed to the water. Keith called said he be there by 9:30 and I told him where to meet us. We got on the water and Keith was already into a few, so I headed up stream to a favorite run.
Started off the day fishing a size 18 ptn flashback, and dropped a bwo emerger about a foot off.In short time it was donkey kong. I had a blast catching fish for the first time in a couple of months, and even though they small fish, it was still fun.
Later we moved around and went down river and I fished another run, but I was lazy from the "pure Belgian yeast" Mikey decided to brew up......good god ...it was like eating a dummy biscuit......
After I regained my composure, I had a blast catching a few on drys, bwo's and sulphurs both size 18.The rainbows were in full color, with deep rose stripes and cheek plates.
End of the year, and I'm back to full time fishing!
Here are a few more pic's of the day.
A-1 reportage. And those rainbows were looking absolutely stunning. I reckon that stream is going to be getting some more pressure now that the wild streams are slowing down and anglers are looking to scratch that itch. maybe this will be the year i finally go fish it...........
Nice pics I almost went up to to the smith saturday too but figured it would be a midge affair with the clear skies and high pressure. Got spoiled on a bwo smorgasbord last time up so I'll ill just wait for some clouds.
I need to make it to the Soho one of these days....I just don't like fishing crowded water so I may wait until the weather is shittier. I figure the smith is good practice though until then
Thanks for the call guys. Oh wait, I was on another river catching 6# bows and 3# smallies.Guests are not allowed to view images in posts, please Register or Login
