It's on like Donkey Kong!

From UO guide Rex Gudgel:

Oh Yea! It's on like Donkey Kong! In between the rains when the water levels drop and warm up a little, the fish are showing their appreciation! David Chamers took just a half day trip to hook twenty to twenty five nice fish (and missed several takes) at Frog Hollow! Applying the Roland Martin techniques for hook setting and fish fighting, he said, "my landing ratio was left to be desired just a little bit".  He did improve through out the morning and we put fish in the net! In an email that David sent thanking me for the great trip he said, "I heard all of your advice about how to cast, mend, hook set, and fight these fish, but sometimes with me it sinks in a little slow!" 

Come see me at Unicoi Outfitters and I'll help you get into fish by improving your fishing techniques and your understanding of what, where when and how!
