  • The Hooch in Helen: Round 2

    Managed to get some fishing up in Helen this past Sunday and even decided to put some time in Splatek's shoes and try my hand in a smaller creek. I fished town for a little bit and then decided to hit that small stream, which turned out to be rather tough. Not having fished a small creek in a little bit of time I didn't do well and got several strikes and lost a fish or two, but other than that it was immensely difficult. The beautiful nature made for a nice experience nonetheless.

    Fishing in town yielded great success with around 15 or so brought to the net, including a nice double which was a nice and fun surprise. I managed to land a nice 12 inch stocker that fought exceptionally well. After fooling many fish in town I traveled up the road to the WMA and brought out another 10 or so fish. I probably could have gotten into a whole lot more but it was about 4:30 or so and I decided it was about time to get started on that stack of homework I had put off. On a side note, I'd like to thank Mr. Vanderpool and Big T for teaching me how to Euro Nymph and how to properly fight fish.

        It tends to happen at inconvenient times, like when you have 6.5x on and both fish go different directions

          I think you could get a double by sneaking up to one of those wild trout plunge pools and scooping a couple up in that magic hat!
