Spring Sensation

It is that time of year once again! The colors are changing, temperatures are rising, animals are coming out, and new life is being born! I have made it up to the Hiwassee river several times in the past few weeks. The fishing has been fantastic! I haven't had an epic days yet where it seems like every cast is a fish, but I have had great luck with streamers and nymphs. Over the last few weeks I have managed to fool a couple big boys, lose a few hogs to line snaps and insecure hook connections, and still remain in the hunt for a few big fellows I have spotted! Exciting times! Yesterday, as darkness was getting near, I notice a bald eagle soaring just above me on the river! It had a certain majesty to its flight. Freely cutting through the air and eventually diving down to snatch its prey! Truly an unbelievable sight to soak in! So far it has been a great spring! Get out and enjoy the fishing! Enjoy the weather and springtime! Here are a few pics from the trips. Til next time...


This was nothing short of an adventure bringing this fish in

Same fish as above. Had a nasty kype jaw!

This one flashed fast to take the streamer

Get you some!
