First Trip of 2012

01 Jan

Kevin and I made our annual trip to fish New Year’s Morning. We headed over the mountain to do a little small stream fishing. The first few hours didn’t yeild much as it was still cold. It started to warm up a little before the storms moved in. This was the prettiest wild rainbow of the year that was more than happy to take a blue wing olive nymph. I landed 9 fish this morning which is a great morning in the mountains. There were some small winter stones coming off. The South Holston had been very busy yesterday so it was nice to get out away from the madness of the tailwater.

Happy New Year

    Great that you’ve made it out already, wish I could say the same. Way too windy the past two days but I’ll be welcoming in 2012 appropriately asap!

    My MooseKnuckle Lanyard is finally on it’s way from SC. As you can see in the picture I’m sure in need of one from the array of random tools and tippet.
