I've got a little time I need to take off from work, so this week shall consist of fishing, Tweetsie Railroad, and God knows what else.

This morning began slow and the trout stream I had in mind was too far for the available time I had. Smallmouth kick ass - plain and simple. That'll do.

Love the rock garden stuff in rivers. Sunday smallmouth outing rendered a few small fries, but generally wasn't that productive. Today would hopefully make up for my shortcomings.

My second time getting the new boots wet. All good so far.

Got a little camera happy with this one. Put up a fight. I lost TWO larger ones after landing this one. The largest gave me that sick feeling you get when you lose a trophy. I struggled to shake it off and continue.

The variations in smallmouth coloring and patterning is one of my favorite things about this fish. I'll be back for those two bastards that eluded me!


Damn nice fish for that stream.


Stalk softly and carry a green stick.


Fishing during the work week, large smalls, and a clam pic. well done.

Do you know what tree that is in your last pic?

Thanks, Doug. Now you spoiled it. I had no idea what the tree was. I'd planned on Googling it. Oh well. [emoji2]

Quite a nectar producer for my honey bees.  Makes a very nice light honey that is compatible with Sourwood, which also happens to be blooming now.


Sweet smallies and fine photography, sir.  'c;

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!


Hell yeah!!!

I don't remember the last time I caught a smallie. Been over 2 years at least.

Nice fish! Good looking water. Shitty invasive tree.


I was surprised to not catch anything other than smallmouth. No sunfish of any kind, no spots, no largemouth, and no stocker trouts. Truly a bronze day.


Cool...this makes me feel the need to get me sum...it's on!  0:0


Good looking water, good looking fishes, and good looking pictures. I like the composition of that last rock shot.

I think you could fit twenty or thirty more rubber legs on that critter fly, though, if you tried. :D
