How do fat people fit into waders? I'm 6' tall, 162 pounds, and it's all I can do to wedge myself into a pair. Sometime during the process, I'm flopping around on the ground behind the car like a fish out of water trying to pull these dang things on. Six to seven more weeks and, thankfully, I'll be wet wading again.

Adirondack46r called the other day and stated that he needed a day on the water. I'd been working a bunch and agreed to meet him at his place today around noon. After a quick stop at LRO, we hit the water. And it never looked better. Cold, clear, and plenty of it.


There were nice, wild, rainbows to be caught.


Little rainbows.


And, even a few brown fish


Adirondack46r and I caught roughly 7-9 fish a piece in the 2 hours we were there. The best part was, they were all caught on dry flies. I fished a size 12 parachute adams and he fished something with cdc, maybe a comparadum. I really kind of forget. When we arrived at the stream, it was full of Quill Gordons and there were fish rising everywhere. I never even considered fishing a nymph.

Have a good day on the river.

Looks like a great time! I assume you we're fishing the park? I'm looking forward to being in the water in a few more weeks, just a little further south.

I was in the park. I try to get my fill of the place before the tourons show up for the summer. Then I like to spend more time fishing just south of there. I'll still head into the park for an evening, but there's much more solitude elsewhere.

The Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Just "park" for short.

I suggest larger waders......

I live in mine when the tailwaters are off and I am 6'6" and 300# sorry to say. Cabela's has some for everyone! Even the cheap ones are tough as nails.

That first bow is really nice for the park. Nice photos.

That first one was really nice. The wife and I plan on heading over to the Hiwassee sometime really soon. All she does is talk about fly fishing since I first showed her how last spring.
