Back to East Tennessee for a little vacation. This is at the end of the road at the Hiawassee River.

These geese tried to kick me out of my fishing spot. They are really pushy and act like they don’t know that they are made of delicious goose meat.

Small Brown Trout. The only one from the trip. All others were Rainbows.

Caught this guy and let him go. He stuck around long enough for me to get a nice underwater shot.

Back on the Hiawassee again. Two days of fishing. One bad day and one great day.

Thunderstorms rolling in. Fished from 7AM-10Am before it started raining. Got 1 for the day.

I catch the largest trout I’ve ever caught on a fly I tied. The fly was a titanium bead headed pheasant tail #16. The fish was a rainbow that was 19 inches and around 3 pounds. The fight lasted a while on a 3 weight rod. The fish didn’t fully fit into my net. I caught about 7 for the day.
