Mountaintown Plantation: A Piece of Trout Heaven

Mountaintown Plantation opened its incredible water to fishing for the first time yesterday. Fly rods in hand, two lucky guys slid in the crystal clear water at daybreak. Bright Fall colors lined the stream banks and sunshine quickly warmed the frosty morning into short sleeve weather.

Any pocket of water that looked like it should hold a trout received a cast and the fly was greeted by a hungry rainbow. Jonathon, Brian, and I experienced one of those days when we could do no wrong.
The trout were eating almost any fly from my unorganized fly boxes.I told Jonathon and Brian that we should see if we can find a fly they won't eat.

Brian had a beaded fish counting necklace with 30 beads on it. He slid them down one time and up another counting at least 60 trout he caught and Jonathon matched him fish for fish. Over 120 trout ain't too bad for a debut.
Hold on tight for we have big plans for the piece of trout heaven!Give us a call at the shop if your interested in hearing more about Mountaintown Plantation.
