well I was up off of hwy 25 here close to asheville....love this spot...the only thing that worked today was a Olive Woolly Bugger.
I would cast it, and let it drift,,from up stream-to down,
most were cought on the way down but also a few were after if was all the way down and I would pull it up stream very slow and let it drop...most hit it on the rise...
Man hopper nice report, and I'm glad to see you getting on some fish. It's also good to see you've found that magical fly.... I remember you going crazy on SEFFF about trying to find some big nasties to throw. Again Congrats!
