Father - Son Fishing Report

A weekend report in from our guide Hunter Morris, half of a Father/Son guide duo here at Unicoi Outfitters:

Given that I spend many of my favorite days on the river with my Dad, it was especially enjoyable to guide T. and Telfair Parker, a father and son from Charleston, SC, on Saturday at Nacoochee Bend. And it didn't hurt that the fish seemed to be having a very fine day as well. Both father and son landed nice rainbows before 9:30 a.m. and the action kept going strong right up to lunch. The afternoon was slightly slower, but given that we estimated at least 50 hookups in the a.m., it would have been difficult to match that again in the afternoon. We caught fish mainly on size 14 olive soft hackles, size 16 rubber-legged prince nymphs, and size 10 olive flash-a-buggers.

Thanks to T. and Telfair for a wonderful day on the river and here's a photo of the elder Parker with a beautiful Nacoochee Bend rainbow...
