Helllooooo out there!

Re: Every body die or move away?

Thinking of another NC trip mid October but will see how the work load is. Make sure you get hold of Rich or somebody to show you how to wave that little wand around! Nic...

Re: Every body die or move away?

Kevin, great to hear from you! Only took a year to get a reply to this post! LOL Pretty dead fly fishing wise here. I did get in a short trip to NC last fall, again in the Spring and my usual 2 weeks in the Catskills this year. It was tough with cold and marginal weather, high water, bugs way late b...

Every body die or move away?

Re: saltwater reel Recommendations

Did still fish the Davidson and you should consider running another 100 miles north to the South Holston...the trout there seem to surface feed nearly year round when they aren't generating. Fall/Winter there are still #16 sulphurs ...
