Nice Morning of Dry Fly Fishing. …
Thurs. June 13, 2013….Very early start today, I guided Neal Mitchell in East TN amd with the threat of bad weather later in the day I wanted us to get the most out of our morning. It was a good call.
Flies were popping off as soon as we got started. Sulphurs began coming off and soon many fish were rising all over the river. I put Neal on some pods of larger more mature fish and we did very well. Over 5 hours Neal landed 35 fish …a mix of browns and rainbows and all on dry flies. We caught all our fish on one of my new CDC cripple patterns. For a while every fish Neal covered, some of which were 16 to 18inch fish, ate it. Will be tying a pile of them for some upcoming fishing.
We fished til mid afternoon until a severe thunderstorm ended our day. We headed home and I returned to find an 80 foot tall poplar tree toppled across my driveway and yard. Fortunately it missed the house ….
Some pretty nasty storms…..on the river there were 70 to 80mph winds…. Will be doing another trip tomorrow guiding Dr David Spivey and his grandson Corbin. Should be a great day…..
Have a nice evening
