Not expecting anyone to give away any secret spots but thinking about exploring Eastern Tennessee. Dennis Cove Campground looks like a good initial spot to base camp. Any tips for that area? Thanks in advance, Chris
Stop and see the Champions at the SOHO fly shop. Great group of guys there. They can fill you on any intel you need. Buy some gear to return the favor. They have a great stock of fly tying material. Plus they stock all of the hottest flies.
This is what I was having the best luck with. Don't think it has a name, I guess sort of a frenchie? Anyway, I had only tied one of them, which is against my own rules but I guess I had a momentary lapse. Anyway I caught 3 fish pretty much back to back and then sacrificed my one fly to the gods of the laurel. Soon as I got home I tied up 6 or 8.
This one is a 12, I was catching them on a 14 but I tied up some 12s as well.
