Default Planning A Trip

I am planning on heading south for a few months this winter -- leaving in January coming back in April -- my thoughts are to get somewhere WARMER than up here in the Great White North so I can fish -- but more to practise my casting prior to taking my FFF certification in March -- I'm hoping to line up some time with a few instructors to fine tune my casting -- already have two lined up -- one in Georgia (found through this site), the other in Tennessee -- I'm planning on hitting Tennessee first then head to Georgia and then???? before heading to Arkansas for FFF course -- any suggestions regarding places to fish, places to eat, and even to stay (prefer cheap as on a budget, but still must be good and clean) would be appreciated
Hopefully might even bump into some of you on the water,
Tight Lines,
Mike

P.S. I intend to keep a journal of my trip -- if it would interest anybody here, I don't mind sharing some of my journal entries on this forum

Just a thought: You might PM Lambster, he is from Georgia and a member of this forum and he could probably steer you into some good fishing down there.

Don't come here! We are into winter and everything except tailwaters are hard frozen. LOL!

You bet, we would like to read your journal of your winter fishing exploits, please post!

Mikeo,
Be sure and hit a 'Waffle House' when you make your swing down South. I think that's the name? it's been a few years since I've been in the South.

I've been in touch with Lambster already -- hope to hook up with him while in Georgia -- and I'll definitely post here while on my trip

And fishstryker -- I'll be eating at Waffle Houses quite a bit I imagine -- I don't think there's Loretta Lynn's any more but that was good eating too -- there was one just outside of Nashville (still in Kentucky I believe) and another towards Jacksonville

A Waffle and some good Biscuits and Gravy sound good right now too!!

I ate @ the Waffle House in Chattanooga Tenn once, and the other time I believe was in Paducah Ill. Both on a trip home from Atlanta. That was a fast trip also, Atlanta to Utah in just over 2 days.

Now you're really making me hungry -- I believe that there is also Cracker Barrels along my way too -- buscuits and gravy certainly sounds good to me too

Fishstrykr where in Utah did you fish????

I actually live in Northern Utah.
I went to Atlanta several years ago to help an old girlfriend move back to Utah. "Geez" what was I ever thinkin? lol

Any particular waters in Utah that your interested in?
We have a Cracker Barrell just South of here about 15 miles, I've never been there though. Are they a good place to go?

Waffle House... What about the Crackle Barrel's Biscuits and Gravy..


Seriously.. If you make it to Missouri. Gary Eaton and Jeff Trigg are in Columbia Mo. I believe Jeff just finish his FFF certification.

For fishing there are several “Catch and Release” streams here in Mo as well as a some nice DNR parks. Here is a few Google Links

You want go wrong with Lambster, he is a great person. He and and a buddy of his came out to Wyoming to fish the North Platte and some of the streams in the Snowies last summer. While they were here we had a great time together (we did a float together on the North Platte and over on North Delaney Lake). Next summer I think he is planning on coming out again to explore the Green River.
