    Re: What are the Chances with Brookies

    I have had it happen at least twice, both times on a small brook trout stream in the Smokies. These are truly wild fish, no stockers there.

    Several on here fish with vintage gear, including myself.

    One thing to pay special attention to is the line. Depending on the age and storage conditions of it, it may need replacing. With age...

    I know on the FB above Knoxville, there are areas you can wade. Possibly the same exists on the NC side around Asheville.

    Re: A few general questions

    One thing I recommend is to find a local fly shop or Orvis store. They have beginning fly fishing programs that are usually free. You can learn a lot in an afternoon or two.

    Re: "Easy" Trout Fishing Destinations?

  11. Re: Mostly Small Fish--Where Did The Big One's Go?

    I know here in the Smokies, water levels drop and temps rise. As the water gets lower it also gets clearer. Big fish get that way by being wary, very wary.

    Re: Cortland 444 Peach WF Fly Line

    Definitely sounds like heat is the culprit.

    What are the temps getting to, both water and air?

    Re: Catch and Keep mandatory?

    What I found in the tribal regulations was that only the ponds are catch and keep. Fines can be imposed for failure to do this.

    The rivers are another matter. Catch and release is the rule on...
  19. Re: Fly reel to best “balance” a 8’6 4wt Redington Classic Trout?

    I have several rods of that length and weight. Most of them weigh about the same.

    The reel for me that balances them out is the older English Battenkill click pawl size 3/4.
