Default Rhododendron Jungle

Tucked back in some of the coves of NC are some beautiful streams with trout and some that have trout that are just thick.Here is the first 100 yards or so when casting was possible.

Then came the crawling, the bow and arrow casting, then climbing over logs under logs ans not getting out of the water because it is so thick that would be even worse.

But through all the crawling the tangled lines there were no crowds and the fishing was wonderful.

It was a good day 3 miles from the nearest road and when we got home it was time for a ribeye on the grill.

Wow, what a jungle! To me those are some of the best streams because of the serenity. Thanks for sharing those pics.

Very nice looking stream, due to the difficulty getting back in there you probably won't ever run into another angler. Congrats on the great looking trout!

The last few stream pics remind why I used to use the longest rod possible most times for that stuff. Dabbing was often in order.
A few years ago I built a 6', 5 weight simply for throwing big flies and junk in streams like those. The whimpy, gutless 0, 00 and 000 weight rods that were all the rage not too long ago just couldn't handle that action.
Go forth and hit those blue lines while your knee's are good and you are semi-invincible. I envy you!
