:I've fished a few of the big Western Rivers: The Madison, Gallatin, Henry's Fork, Beaverhead (one of my favorites) and many of the streams in Yellowstone Park. It's great fun fishing the big Western streams with plenty of casting room and flush hatches. But I've fished the small streams in North Georgia for more years than I want to admit to. For the most part, we don't have the challenge of matching the hatch here, but making a good presentation in a tight mountain creek without spooking the native trout is a real challenge and when you're successful, just as rewarding as fooling a Western fish. Sometimes I think we read and hear all the hype about "Blue Ribbon Waters" and don't stop to fully appreciate what we've got at home. Fishing in North Georgia versus out West -- the worst day of doing either beats the best day at work!
