I was invited to fish a small wild trout stream, by a fellow small stream fisher, and "Fly Addict", Apache Trout. This is a stream he has fished many times and holds its waters with respect. This was my first time fishing it.
We met at a parking area and after some talk he took me down to the stream and started telling of its better places to fish, and the flies that he has used on it many times. He knew the stream well and his info worked magic on the wild trout that inhabit the stream.
We had a very enjoyable few hours, hooking some trout and even a few to hand. I thank him for the invite, and all that nature provided.
These are two flies given to me by Apache Trout. They are widely used in the Smokies. "Yellarhammer" and "Coreys Calf Tail"
