holy cow! those are some monsters!
I have GOT to get up there, somehow. Looks like you had a really awesome time. I'm not much of a fly fisherman but i can wear them out with an ultra-light spinning outfit.

It is a public river. The Hiwassee in Murphy NC. The area has some restrictions since it is semi private, but floatable and very fishable. The place we stayed had beautiful landscapes and river access. Many of the homes had feeders on the main river, hince the fat nature of the fish. There is no stocking program, so the fish are wild but fed. Very similar to the Soque. They feed all up and down the river, and we were very fortunate to be able to fish there. I had one of the best times I ever had fishing. Didn't even have to put my waders on, just moved up and down the bank a few hundred yards. It was a blast! I cooked lots of food for my friends and just hung out watched football, fished, drank a few beers and kicked back and enjoyed!

No pics, no proof! Don't care if you is a preacher!

It never happened. :bounce:

We need to hook up though, I think you'd have a good time on any of the places I fish! :cool:
