Thank God I donít fish these tailwaters that everyone has been posting about lately. Iíll stick to my 3-7 mile hikes and enjoy catching trout that most of you would consider too small for bait. I personally donít know how you tailwater guys handle it. I normally start thinking a place is too crowded if I notice someone is within a half mile of me.

BTW, Iíve never even seen a canoe, or had to deal with fireworks on any of the streams I fish. However, I did once have 2 drunk girls sitting in the river in lawnchairs drop their tops and, for lack of better words, ďshake them at meĒ. That river will go unnamed. I wouldnít want all the Caney hordes showing up there.

Hereís some old pictures I still have in my photobucket account.

That's some fun fishing for sure. Are those pics in the Smokies?

1st pic, Cherokee NF
2nd pic, Somewhere in the Smokies, not real sure where.
3rd pic, Cherokee NF, I think itís Sycamore Creek during the drought last year. I might have to make it back down there this weekend to see what it looks like this year.

Use a light enough flyrod and you'll have a fight on your hands.

I think I have fished almost exactly at the same spot as you show in Photo #2. I have a photo nearly identical to that one somewhere on my computer at home (of course, all the streams in the Smokies kind of look alike sometimes).

The only difference in my picture is that there's a guy fishing just above me. Some turd hiked all the way up, past where I'd been working my way upstream for over an hour, and then he waded in less than 30 yards upstream from me and started casting. I was so mad I almost had to chew on one of those stream boulders.

There may be fewer idiots up in GSMNP, but they still have a knack for cozying up with me.
