I am reporting for my son-in-law who along with his wife, son and his parents spent Thanksgiving in the
in Gatlinburg Great Smoky Mountains . B.T. manages to work in a couple of days of trout fishing on the Little River which runs through the heart of Gatlinburg. It is one of those streams that is fed year round with springs flowing out of the high elevations in the mountains. Brook, Rainbow, and Brown trout make Little River their home. B.T. said the trout fishing this past week has been slow as far as dries were concerned. The two days that he fished produced seven nice bows with the largest being a 13” in length. They were not caught on the fly. All were taken on the trout magnet in the color of chartreuse/black. The presentation was tight lining with the hits occurring on the end of the drift. B.T. said they were a blast on his Micro-light 7 ½ ft. rod. This rod is like using a fly rod because you are getting the play that is associated with a 7 ½ ft. to an 8 ft. fly rod. If you are not using the fly rod then this is the rod you need to go with especially in tight places. This is an awesome trip they made, because of all the activities that one can get involved in there. My wife son and I hope to make the trip with them next year. Tennessee
Nice 13" Rainbow caught on the trout maget. This is a killer little bug for gills as well as trout.
