I have been saltwater trout fishing all my life and caught my first rainbow on the hooch 7-18-04. I got the map and am in awe of the number of streams. I hope to return and fish in N. Georgia each spring and fall.

Welcome aboard... Sorry it took so long, I somehow missed your post! We're glad to have you here at NGTO! We always love a saltwater fly angler on here! Get involved... the next big event NGTO will be at is the Unicoi Outdoor Adventure Day on Sept. 25, 2004 at Unicoi State Park.

Once again, glad to have you.

Thanks! I haven't picked up fly fishing yet but would be willing to try it.

Stop by Unicoi's 3rd Annual Outdoor Adventure Day, there are a lot of instructors there each year willing to answer your questions about all aspects of the outdoor world. If you have children bring them along, after all that's what it's all about.

If you feel comfortable in helping us out with the event sign up with Don (Windknot) or Jeff Durniak of the GADNR and become a child helper. Basically they help children catch the stocked fish at Unicoi's Smith Creek. I believe Don has an ongoing post in the Events and Happenings forum. It'd be a great way for you to not only meet fellow trout fishermen, but to get involved.

Call or e-mail if you have any questions...
