Hello New World

Posted 11-17-2013 at 04:54 PM by troutfodder

Hello I'm new to this forum, really new.
I'm primarily a fly-fisherman for bass, but when i have the chance, I go for trophy trout in the beautiful streams of Western North Carolina.

Two weeks ago, I went on a trip to Stone Mountain Park. Man, were the trout biting on the Delayed Harvest Stream. The fly that was the most effective was a #4 nymph and a small cahill above it. The effects were profound!. In total 11 brookies all over 8 in. and 2 rainbow and brookie hybrids!

unnamed short story

Posted 10-28-2013 at 01:07 PM by mikel

The autumn chill had a bit of steam coming off the water and there was gold along the banks...just the way it had been each of the 42 years he'd come here. Ever changing, yet ever the same, this water called to him as no other. With a sigh and a little smile pulled his old 5 weight friend from a battered tube and rigged up. Fifty yards downstream, at the top of Sal's hole, a sickly salmon rolled.

Sal was long dead, but 35 years ago he had taken a tumble there, filling his waders with...
