: I will be in the Huntsville area for a few days after
: Christmas, and I hope to "escape" for at least one day
: of fly fishing. Anyone got any suggestions for a day
: trip. Looking at a map, I noticed the Elk River in
: Tenn., has anyone had any experiences with this river?
: Any guidance will be greatly appreciated

I have had excellent luck on the Elk about 1-2Mi.below
Tim's Ford Lk.Alot of weed growth so think scuds and sowbugs
tiny Baetus nymphs.I've had my best luck on sz.20 GRHE(lighted
weighted)Fish up and across.Watch for risers to tiny BWO(20-22).
This stream and setting is different than N.Ga.mountain streams.
This is Cumberland Plateau.Jack Daniels Dist.one or 2 hills away.
Good Luck.GRW
