B.T. and I on the Caney Fork

Fishing with a guide is always a plus when one is trying to land quality trout. Friday’s outing was one of those guide trips that had quality trout as well as numbers brought to hand. David of Southeastern Fly had B.T. and me on trout from the start of the half-day trip to the finish. The weather was good with low humidity, and some rain, which took a back seat to the fish action.  Generators were off giving the Caney tailrace a natural flow with all the familiar pockets, seams, and some fast water; which would test our skills landing the trout as well as getting that perfect drift.


Some of the many trout B.T. landed while fishing the Pheasant Tail nymph in some slow to fast water. B.T. and I have made a number of trips with David of Southeastern fly and always had great trips. Fishing with someone who loves the sport as much as I do makes the trip special. Our daughter found a winner in B.T. Cathey and I consider him our second son!!
 My second favorite tailrace to fish; the Caney has some awesome browns and rainbow swimming in its waters. B.T. and I enjoyed fishing with David, hope we can make a trip again next year.

Nice to hear Bill. I love guided trips. I've been lucky in having great guides that are as crazy as I am. Looking forward to more bluegill news.

Great to see you were able to get on the water with a Guide. I have not had many opportunities with a Guide in my fishing life span, but, really appreciate the ones when I did.

Sorry to hear about the loss of your pictures. I remember doing that a time or two myself.

Bill I agree with you on the use of a qualified guide. They can be a great asset.
Great outing.

It's all about the experience and of course, now you can tell everyone about the 30" rainbow you caught but unfortunately the pictures were lost...

Very nice, Bill! That's too bad about the pictures on your camera. I've done that before. Whoops. I have never been on a guided trip, but will eventually do one in the next year or so to explore new water.

Judging from the pictures on David's site, it was one heck of a day.

Don't you just love it when you catch a boat load of lunkers and the camera takes a siesta? Oh well, that's what fish stories are for.

David is a great guide, he put us on lots of trout, if fact over 40 was the last count we had with an hour left in the trip. Thanks for the comment
