I had the opportunity to fish Henry's fork, Silver Creek, and several other "famous" waters out west, and it is "different" but I won't say more difficult. Definitely, casting is easier out west since you don't have all the canopy to deal with, but there are other factors to deal with in some of the western waters. (Like matching hatches accurately, and dealing with sometimes not so friendly fly shops and guides who seem to be upset that you want to fish "on your own." But the scenery is beautiful and well worth the trip. I actually saw a bald eagle take a trout from Henry's fork . It happened right in front of me, and I will remember that sight for the rest of my life. But N. GA has its own beauty, and I wish I was on some stream today instead of banging this keyboard.
