Too hot to fish--just about, too hot to tie flies--not at all. That's what we'll be doing this 1st Tues of August (3rd) at Unicoi Outfitters in Helen at 6:00 PM. Thanks to Robert Sullivan and Robert Rivers for volunteering to show us how to "tie 1 on" this time--can't wait to see what flies they will tie.

If you're wanting to learn, are just starting, or if you're experienced at tying flies, come join us--we have a good time. We'll even supply all the equipment and supplies that you need--hope to see you there.

It is really hot to fish for trout right now, but I did guide a trip at Nacoochee Bend last Wed.

Tom Skinner from Pensacola with his sons Tom and Sam wanted to give fly fishing a shot.

They wanted to learn the basics and then we tried to catch a fish. We caught shiners, bass, bream, h-heads, and even a catfish.

Sam needed to catch a trout on a fly rod to earn his scout merit badge--oh yea, we caught a few rainbows too. What a great family to fish with--thanks to you Tom and your 2 boys--hope to see you on the water again.
