    Default East Tennessee with Friends

    I had the pleasure of spending Saturday with two great guys and well known members of FAOL, gentleman Jack Hise and the trout whisper, WarrenP. We were also lucky to run into Popperfly (Kevin) at the river. Jack let me campout in his abode and cooks a mighty good breakfast. I discreetly picked up a few tips on being more colorful from Jack. What a couple of great guys.

    The fishing was also pretty darn good as far as I'm concerned, I was able to catch a few Brookies, the first I had ever seen much less caught and also the best Rainbow I had caught a good while, at least all years since these were my first trout of the year.

    In addition, Jack directed me to some of my favorite food, BBQ. The River Cafe at Normandy has about the best ribs outside of Memphis. Two ribs left no room for the Whiskey Bread Pudding by George (DIckel), maybe next time. Maybe Warren will add a fish photo or two, I download this from Jack's camera, I labeled this one Motley Crew.

    Uncle Jesse, Warren posted the thread way up in the Fly Anglers Online. Nice people photos and fish shots. Jim
    I'm either going to, coming from or thinking about fishing. Jim

    Jesse,

    Enjoyed your very short stay. Try longer next trip. Here is a link to the pictures I posted yesterday after returning from our fishing:

    Fly fishing and fly tying are two things that I do, and when I am doing them, they are the only 2 things I think about. They clear my mind.

    Jack, I will come back and sign it at my earliest opportunity. I hope that is not that far off. I have it in my mind I would like to spend some time on the Duck about April or early May. The fishing looked promising and the local restaurant has pretty young ladies who serve great BBQ. I think next time I may have to go with one of the sandwiches and a helping of the Whiskey Bread Pudding by George. It would not be the first time I have planned dinner around bread pudding.
